Beluga Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew

10 May


I would buy the Green Kitchen app just for this recipe. It was mind-blowing. I didn’t have cardamom which made me a little nervous that the meal would be lacking flavor. To make up for the missing cardamom, I decided to add cinnamon and nutmeg. The result was so good that I may never try it with the cardamom.

This was a really hearty meal. I could definitely see this recipe becoming a fall/winter favorite. Despite being so hearty, it was still really light and didn’t leave me feeling really full.


Keep your eyes out for my review of the app on Monday!

Spaghetti Squash with Pesto and Beluga Lentils

9 May


via Green Kitchen app

This meal was the first time that I’ve had spaghetti squash and it definitely won’t be the last. It is a great alternative to pasta which can be so heavy. Michael didn’t love the squash but he said that it wasn’t horrible because of the pesto. I decided that I would use my pesto instead of the parsley pesto that the original recipe called for.


The one part of the meal that was surprisingly good were the lentils. I had never had beluga lentils before but they are really good. They are a bit firmer and a little stronger in flavor than other lentils. However, I felt they added a nice flavor and texture to what could have been an otherwise boring meal.


Green Lentil & Yellow Beet Salad

7 May


I’m still here! Blogging and cooking have taken a back seat since we came home from Colorado. A combination of life and illnesses left me with zero motivation to do much of anything. But that’s all changing now! I felt awful after eating comfort food and take-out, so I decided that we’re spring cleaning ourselves around here.

Feeling uninspired, I decided to try different recipes from the Green Kitchen app all week. Last night we had this Green Lentil & Yellow Beet Salad. It was OK. Definitely not the most delicious meal I’ve eaten but it was really healthy and I didn’t feel like there was a 50 pound weight in my stomach. Once my motivation returns I’ll figure out a way to make a much more delicious version.

Unfortunately I can’t post the ingredients and directions, but my plan is to give you my opinion on the app and whether of not I felt it was worth the money. See, there is a method to my madness!
