maybe a little burnt?
Although not dry, I have to give this recipe an overall grade of a C or C+. It was decent, but a little bit boring. The curry powder and raisins added some interesting flavors, but I was hoping for more. I think that perhaps I just don't love meals when lentils are the star of the show. For instance, I liked the Mediterranean Bulgur and Lentils because it had lentils, corn, and bulgur (slash rice), as well as lots of great flavors. But this casserole had lentils as the main player, and I wasn't as excited about it. Perhaps more soy sauce or more red bell pepper would have helped? Or adding something to make the dish creamier - like cottage cheese?
it looks very orangey, no?That sort of makes me realize - I've totally been in the mood for creamy, rich foods lately. I wonder how much that contributes to my not liking this dish, simply based on its lack of creamy texture?
Good thing I was able to make myself a nice creamy vegetarian dinner! Dinner tonight was Cheese Quesadillas. The recipe technically just called for Cheddar cheese, tomato, green onions, and green chiles... but it suggested adding more veggies and beans.
chicken quesadillas I made in August. Have you ever made quesadillas at home? If so, what is your favorite method?
