With the excess of the holiday season over I’m craving food that is not baked or fried and contains a hefty dose of vegetables. As I’m also doing the Uber frugal month challenge I thought this would be good time to turn to my pantry to give myself a chance to focus once more on eating less meat and less processed foods.
It turned out we didn’t even need to visit the grocery this week!
I found 1.5 packages of lentils in my quest and decided to make this lentil chili. I even followed the recipe, mostly. I hadn’t purchased peppers and didn’t have stock in so I skipped those and substituted water for the broth.
In spite of this substitution, it’s a very tasty meal and will give us about 2 days worth of meals. It’s just the sort of hearty fare I need in January!
Do you have a favourite lentil dish? I still have a bag left!
