I am having trouble with food this summer! Everyone still needs to eat, but I sure don't feel like cooking.
Here's what I made today:
Homemade Garlic and Olive Oil Mini-Foccacia Breads (recipe some other time) (from the freezer, I made a large batch one day)
Red lentil soup with roasted red peppers and tomatoes (yes, it was served hot, and the kids complained. How would it work served cold? Maybe with some sour cream or something it would work? What do you think?)
Those who were still hungry ate seconds, or supplemented this meal with cottage cheese.
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 large red pepper, diced
Saute above ingredients in olive oil (over medium heat) till the peppers begin to carmelize.
Add 1 diced tomato (large)
Cook, stirring frequently
Add: 2 cups red lentils (sorted and rinsed)
water or soup stock to fill the pot
salt, pepper to taste
Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 15 min - until the lentils are fully cooked and soft.
