Puy Lentil & Wilted Spinach Bowl

goop

Simple and healthy, this is made really tasty with the herb vinaigrette and will fill you up until dinner.

Makes 2

1 cup Puy lentils, rinsed and drained

2 cups tightly packed spinach

1 small yellow onion, diced

1 large carrot, diced

1 garlic clove, finely minced

1 bay leaf

2 sprigs fresh thyme

4 cups of water

1/2 cup of quinoa, cooked

1/2 cup brown rice, cooked

healthy drizzle of olive oil

sea salt + black pepper

fresh basil, torn for garnish

fresh parsley, torn for garnish

 

for the dressing:

1/4 cup tightly packed basil, roughly chopped

1/4 cup tightly packed parsley, roughly chopped

2 spring onions, sliced

small bunch of chives (about 8), sliced

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/3 cup white wine vinegar

1/3 cup olive oil

1. Add a couple glugs of olive oil to the bottom of a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, garlic, bay leaf, and thyme. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables become soft and aromatic. Add the lentils and stir with the vegetables, cooking for a minute. Add the water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for about 40 minutes until the lentils are soft, but still hold their shape.

2. While the lentils are cooking, make the dressing. Add all ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor. Pulse a few times until roughly processed but not completely smooth. Transfer back to the mixing bowl and slowly drizzle in olive oil while whisking to incorporate.

3. Once the lentils are done, turn off the heat, and pour the dressing over the top. Immediately add the spinach and mix until wilted.

4. Place equal amounts of quinoa and brown rice into two serving bowls or sealable food containers. Add the lentils and garnish with fresh basil, parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
