Memphis Lentil & Veggie Mash & Catching Up On The Raw Chef
Another thing I wanted to accomplish while making this dish is to use my Wildtree Memphis Dry Rub. I really like the flavor but wasn't going to use it as a 'rub' per say. BUT...that's one of the best things about Wildtree...multipurpose, multi-use! So I did just that...I used it in this dish!
I also like this dish because I only used just a few ingredients! Check it out...here's the recipe...
2/3 C Red Lentils (in About 2 C Water)
1 C Broccoli
2 teaspoons Wildtree Memphis Dry Rub
I also used use a little bit of Grapeseed Oil so it wouldn't stick but it's optional
Last night I was able to catch up on a few relaxing things such as thumbing thru some magazines and catching up on PodCasts that I watch on AppleTV from time to time. One of my favorites is Russell James - The Raw Chef.
Last night I watched the episode of him making Chia Porridge. He put a lot of Superfoods in his but they were all optional. I might try some of what he suggested, however, mainly because I have some of the items in my pantry. I'm not one to sit down with a HUGE bowl of Chia Porridge or Pudding mostly because of the texture of the gelled Chia. Sort of reminds me of Tapioca or Cavier/Fish Eggs...ewwww! BUT...what I have found is that I can put all the flavors together and then put it in a blender and have it more as a pudding than a porridge to break down the plumpy-gelled-seeds, if you know what I mean. I haven't tried this in a vitamix yet but it worked fine in my Ninja previously. So...my mini-goal is to try more Breakfast Chia Porridge Combos and Snacks more frequently.
