How about ROASTED MUSHROOM BALSAMIC LENTILS for a recipe name? That’s certainly a mouthful, right? Well, in this day in age, you’ve got to be crafty when it comes to naming your dishes. Or you just don’t know what to call something, so you jam a bunch of words together and hope you get the point across! LOL!

My new infatuation is turning them into a sort of mash or “salad.” It makes for a satisfying meal that can be enjoyed in so many ways! Introducing, my Chickpea Artichoke Salad!
I love soup. I love it more than a person probably should. To me, it’s a pretty perfect food. But only, and I mean ONLY, if it’s done right. In other words, no whimpy soup for me. Give me texture, give me flavor and give me satisfaction. Give me this Veggie Lentil Soup!

You guys, it’s almost laughable how long it takes me to come up with names for my recipes. And mind you, it involves ZERO research. Yeah, pathetic. I don’t look up SEO or anything.

Rolls off the tongue, right? 🙂 But it truly was inspired by love of the good old Pacific Northwest. Read on for more details!
