Carrot Lentils over Quinoa

Carrot Lentils over Quinoa

After a long weekend full of beer and bbq’s, I had to pull it together on monday night with a healthy meal that would help me get my act together for the rest of the week. I pretty much grabbed whatever vegetables were in the fridge and mixed them in with some lentils to serve over quinoa. It came out really great and I have been eating healthy ever since! We’ll see how this weekend goes though…

Persian Burritos

Persian Burritos

You guys know I love to make twists on the burrito from all over the world. There are even some good versions in Stuffed! The key to making this work is not just slapping a bunch of exotic ingredients into a tortilla, you really have to take the time to replace all of the burrito staples like rice, beans, meat, and salsa. This week Mandi and I made an incredibly tasty Persian take on the burrito. For the rice, we used a sour cherry rice complete with the crispy bits Persian rice is famous for. In place of beans, we used lentils. The meat was a classic marinaded chicken, salsa was a Persian tomato-cucumber salad, and for sour cream, we made a yogurt sauce.
