I wanted to have a vegetarian meal that included as many super foods as I could (or that I had on hand). This is what I came up with! Even my meat loving husband enjoyed this one.
1 cup green lentils
1 cup quinoa
1 cup freekeh
1/2 cup thinly sliced kale
1/3 cucumber, diced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 1/2 lemons, juiced
1" fresh ginger, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 red chili pepper, finely sliced with seeds
1 teaspoon olive oil
Cook the lentils, quinoa and freekeh at the same time. Following the instructions on the package. It should be around 15-20 minutes.
While the above is cooking in a small sauce pan combine lemon juice, ginger, garlic, red chili and olive oil. Heat on low for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl combine cooked lentil, quinoa and freekeh. Toss with dressing from saucepan.
Add kale, cucumber and parsley. Toss and serve!
