Yes, my name really is spelled that way.


indian lentil salad.

Indian food is like comfort food to me.  Cold winter-y nights are best counteracted by hot spicy food, warm naan and pillows of basmati rice.  But with the recent warm weather coupled with my Indian cravings, I made a salad to enjoy some exotic spices cold....
indian lentil salad.
cooked lentils
cooked rice (quinoa also works)
1/2 chopped onion
1 bunch broccolini (or other dark leafy green - kale, spinach, chard)
ground turmeric
garam masala
ground curry
juice of 1/2 lemon
rice wine vinegar
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
optional: garbanzo beans
 Preheat a skillet over low-medium heat.  Add oil and onions.  Saute until slightly translucent and add broccolini.  Add spices (be generous) and saute until cooked down, about 4-5 minutes.  
 In a bowl, combine rice and lentils with a drizzle of olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice.  Stir to mix.  Add cooked veggies and stir to combine.  Serve cold or at room temp.
