Sarah's Super Supper

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!


  1. I'm going to make this but wanted to know is the red chili pepper a hot chili? Thanks!

  2. It is a hot chili. Hope you enjoy!
