Looking for super simple AND super scrumptious AND super plant based AND super non-photogenic?
I got you! Look no further than this awesome lentil eggplant meal, inspired by #ottolenghi .
💁🏻♀️What I used
💥2 cups cooked lentils
💥1 can plum tomatoes, crushed by hand or with potato masher
💥1 head of garlic, peeled and chopped
💥1 onion, small diced
💥1 large eggplant, roasted on an open fire with flesh scooped out in chunks (for super flavor) OR cubed and roasted in the oven (for super easy) or straight out of the jar (for super-duper easy)
💥2 Tbs olive oil
💥S&P to taste , chopped parsley for garnish, plain Greek yogurt for fun 🤷🏻♀️How I did it
👉🏻Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil, till softened and browning
👉🏻Add the lentils and mix well
👉🏻Add the eggplant and tomato (juice and all), and fold in till well mixed.
👉🏻Season with salt and pepper
👉🏻Garnish with parsley 🙋🏻♀️How to eat it
💫Serve it up warm or room temp or even cold the next day (IF there are any leftovers)!
💫 Serve it up for lunch the next day over some greens because you doubled up the recipe to plan for #nextovers
💫Serve with a scoop of Greek yogurt for added flavor and texture and contrast of warm and cold
💫Spread it on top of Wasa crackers or toasted baguette
💫Add vegetable broth and turn it into a super simple AND super scrumptious AND super non-photogenic soup ✅Why it works
👍🏻The vitamin C in the tomatoes helps us absorb more iron out of the lentils for our blood
👍🏻The olive oil helps us absorb more lycopene out of the tomatoes for our eyes
👍🏻The chlorogenic acid in the eggplant AND the folic acid in the lentils AND the fact that it’s a total plantbased meal makes this a star for our hearts❤️ .
