Next is a dish I made for myself last night. It was green lentils in a creamy mushroom sauce with wholewheat spaghetti. It was quite nice, although the sauce was a little runny as I overestimated the amount of liquid that the lentils would absorb! However, the dish was very different from what I usually make with lentils (usually a tomato based curry) so it was a welcome change!
Just to prove that I have been eating dishes which do not involve pasta, below is a picture a curry! It was made with kidney beans, and lots of brussel sprouts (one of my fave veggies!) and was with Rogan Josh curry sauce (from a can as usual!). I served it over brown rice (which I overcooked slightly as can be seen from the picture!). I enjoyed it very much though and hopefully the spicyness might scare off the cold I have at the moment!
