Continuing our month of vegetarian choices! I’m being extra careful to not use words like “cheat, guilt, good, bad,” and so on. I think that thought pattern surrounding food can be so damaging, but also I agree that in terms of physical health there are foods that are better for our bodies than others, if we’re talking lentils vs cheetos.
Now, in terms of mental health or happiness or convenience? We could go on all day about those things.
But today, instead of my not wanting you to have “cheat days,” we ARE talking lentils. I love lentils, but even if you don’t I think you could stomach these. They are SO flavorful (because salt) and honestly I could eat a bowl of them on their own. We made this into a fun bowl with bright pink pickled onions, a shortcut gremolata, and toasty roasty cauliflower, one of my favorite substitutes for meat because when roasted it has just the best texture.
The idea for this came from an Instagram account Jay follows but he couldn’t show me a recipe or the actual account or image (?), so he described a picture to me and this is what I came up with. So, if you made some amazing cauliflower bowls and this feels like a copycat, tell me! And I’ll credit you if it was your original image.…
