I had something new at one of my favorite restaurants last weekend and I've made it twice since because I loved it so much. I know there was lots of discussion of lentil dishes recently but I cannot remember which thread it was so I'm posting it here. Enjoy!
Lentil Fetoosh Salad
1/4 c. EVOO
2 c. cooked lentils
as much cilantro as you can stand then a little more
1T. chopped garlic
cumin, salt & pepper, lemon juice (I use maybe 1T. of cumin and at least 2 lemons including the dressing but I like it flavorful)
1 c. cooked brown rice
salad of chopped romaine, tomatoes, red onion and cucumber
-Caramelize onions then add celery, lentils, garlic and cilantro, saute until celery is just soft.
-Add cumin, salt & pepper, and lemon juice.
-Mix thoroughly with brown rice and serve over salad with a dressing of lemon juice, EVOO, turmeric and garlic, blended.
At the restaurant it is served with fried or toasted pita chips in bite size pieces like croutons. I don't have those around but it really adds an amazing texture. I also don't use the olive oil to save calories and it's still damn good!
