Quick and Easy Spiced Lentils and Rice

This spiced lentil and rice dish has been around for many centuries because of a good reason: it’s simply that good. It's called mujaddara, a traditional Middle Eastern dish that has first been documented in a cookbook during the medieval period. It’s no wonder that this dish has been passed down to generations and across borders because it’s delicious, affordable, and nutritious. In fact, this plant-based meal contains lentils, which are locally-grown legumes that help manage blood glucose levels.As if it can’t get any better, you can cook this plant-based recipe with the help of a rice cooker. This review notes that rice cookers today are high-tech and smart enough to cook recipes other than rice. You can use it to sauté your onions and pressure-cook your lentils...

Every now and again, I go to the farmers market and pick up a fruit or vegetable that I have no experience with cooking. This most recent time was tomatillos. I've had my fair share of tomatillos, but never actually cooked them myself. I decided to turn them into whatever popped into my head first. Mexican food is always on my mind, so salsa it is.  Here's what you'll need:Salsa: 5 or 6 green tomatillos, skins removed and washed1 head of corn, husked and cleaned and kernels removed from cob or 1 can of kernels1 jalapeno, seeds removed if you don't like it spicy2 garlic cloves1/4 cup cilantro, washedSalt to taste For the tacos:1 package of good quality corn tortillas 1/2...

  Listen, let’s be honest, before being vegan, the thought of a vegan mac and cheese was wack. The vegan cheese I had tried at the time, was sub par and there just wasn’t anyone doing it justice. The real problem is, people try and make vegan food too healthy sometimes. It’s mac n cheese, give the people white pasta, vegan butter and tasty goodness. My recipe is all about that bechamel sauce. Some things ya just can’t learn on the internet. White Sauce: Ingredients:4 cups unsweetened plant milk (I used oat)1/2 small white onion, chopped1/4 cup vegan butter, like earth balance1/4 cup all-purpose flourPinch of nutmeg Method: 1.Heat the milk and onions in a medium saucepan over medium heat...

  I hate when blogs have the longest intros ever. Does anyone even read those? Just some notes before we get started. I used 1 package of Beyond Meat Ground Beef, but you can use any of their products. I realize that these products are more expensive, so feel free to replace with an extra can of lentils or extra mushrooms. Also, this recipe comes together rather quickly. You’re basically making two sauces, then stacking them between noodles. You can get all of my cheese recipes in my E-Cookbook, Let’s Eat. Grab a copy Here Ingredients: Red Sauce:1 large onion, finely diced5-8 garlic cloves, minced1 package of Beyond Meat Ground Beef (see above for mods)1 can of lentils, drained and...
