Warm salad with spinach and lentils

Warm salad with spinach and lentils

Today, I had a fridge full of half-eaten vegetables. I am not great with left-overs, so I’m on a mission to be better at using up food that I have in the fridge instead of always shopping for more. This is what I had in my fridge today, but you can use whatever you have in yours. I would always use lentils, spinach and chili, apart from that- knock yourself out! 😉

lentils

 

Chop finely and fry quickly in a pan:

  • red onion
  • garlic
  • carrot
  • zucchini (squash) – put half in the pan now, save the other half for later
  • yellow pepper

Add to the pan just before serving:

  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • lentils, cooked and rinsed
  • spinach
  • the other half of the zucchini, finely chopped

Fry for a few seconds- until the spinach has just wilted. The zucchini should be crunchy!

  • Soy sauce
  • a little bit of Mango Chutney
  • lime juice
  • coriander, chopped
  • salt and pepper

Mix, taste and pour over the salad.

Today, served with grilled chicken, but is just as good on it’s own, or with fish or good bread.

Enjoy!
