Lentil, Brown Rice & Feta Salad
I don't often like to brag about how amazing my husband is, but he is. One thing I am very, very appreciative of is his cooking ability, and that he is happy after a day at work to come home and cook! Tonight he made such an easy, healthy and delicious meal I had to share!
3 Cups Brown Rice
2 Cups brown lentils
1 Capsicum (we used red, but I think yellow is good too)
1 cup organic sultanas
2 spring onions
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup mint
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup lemon juice
3tbs Olive Oil
Basically we just cooked the rice and the lentils and then chopped or crumbled everything into small pieces and mix it all in together, mix through the olive oil and lemon juice and let it stand for a while to get the flavours through the dish.
Even the toddler ate this! I was skeptical if he would, but as long as we do the two spoon method he eats things like this ok (two spoon is one for me, one for him, it distracts him long enough to open his mouth and let me shovel the food in, also he is trying really hard to feed himself too).
We also have plenty left over for lunch for all of us tomorrow, I can't wait to eat it again.
Please try it, you'll love it!
