My Christmas Eve Menu 2014 with a recipe for Lentils with Winter Vegetables. I hosted Christmas Eve dinner this year for my mom and her husband. It’s so lovely to be able to get together with family. That’s really true for any time of the year, but especially during the holidays.
I created this Spicy Lentil and Sweet Potato Salad to showcase my Chipotle Vinaigrette Dressing. This salad with its combination of roasted sweet potatoes, sweet black grapes, earthy lentils, crunchy pepitas, and spicy dressing is so awesome!
This dish makes a great fall dinner or lunch. And, it makes a great budget-friendly weeknight meal. The roasted lentils give a nice spicy smoky crunch to the dish. The smoky roasted broccoli helps lighten it up, while the sausages (even if they are vegan) are meaty and yummy.
The Farmer’s Market Salad: roasted beets, toasted walnuts, lentils, avocado, and thyme on fresh spinach. Full of nutrition and yumminess!
