Inexpensive, low in calories, and high in fiber and protein — Dal is a “trifecta” food! There are so many ways to cook Dal. So aside from the basics (ginger, garlic, and some kind of curry), it’s a perfect dish to clean out the veggie drawer and create something new each time. Substitutes to try: old carrots, a random parsnip, the summer overload of zucchini, aging red pepper, etc. Be creative and make it your own!
Grains & Legumes
Change out the veggies in this recipe depending on season - asparagus, peas and arugula and farro were in the original version.
Tasty meat balls with NO meat, eggs or gluten!
If you're on a grain-free regimen, millet to the rescue! It has no hull so there's no lectin problem, so Dor was able to enjoy these while on her "Plant Paradox" cleanse.
This salad keeps well, and the tarragon flavor only gets better if the salad has a few hours to rest. That makes this a wonderful make-ahead side dish with hearty robust flavors.
