Couscous Lentil Salad is a healthy side dish or even a vegetarian dinner. This healthy dish is filled with fiber and vegetables.
If I open up my pantry door, a bag of lentils is liable to fall out. I seem to have collected a lot of different varieties and big bags of them at that. I never know when I am going to feel like making an Indian dish so I like to be prepared. You could say I am slightly over-prepared. I probably have enough lentils to last for years.
So I’ve had to find different ways to use them. Once I figured out how to cook lentils without making them utter mush, a whole other world of lentil possibilities opened up to me. In this dish, I pair them with couscous and grilled vegetables to make a delectable side dish. This dish is loaded with healthy eats. Lentils are a great source of carbohydrates, protein and fiber. This really could be a one pot meal rather than a side dish. It is that satisfying.
My next goal with lentils is to sprout them. Oh so exciting! I had a sprouted lentil salad at an Indian function and adored it. I’ve been researching it and it seems pretty easy. Now that the little one is back to school I can give it a try. I just love a food challenge.
