Biscuits & Gravy…sort of
29 Mon, 2010 § 3 Comments
I have been trying to find ways to get in more protein for breakfast, so dinner leftovers have come in handy.
It reminded me of a sort of vegan biscuits & gravy…& it was too simple.
Ezekial english muffins, toasted & buttered with Earth Balance
Leftover lentil stew, warmed
A couple dollops of cashew cream
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ cup onion, chopped [I was out but think it would be a nice addition]
Saute in a small saucepan in EVOO over medium heat until fragrant.
- 1 cup lentils, rinsed
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ¼ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp pasta toss spice [basil, oregano, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic]
- dash nutmeg
- dash sea salt
- jarred/canned tomatoes, drained [I used a half quart of my mom’s]
- 1 tsp molasses
- 1 tsp carob
Combine with garlic & saute ~1 minute.
- juice from jarred tomatoes + water = 2 cups
Add liquid & bring to boil. Reduce heat & simmer until lentils are soft & cooked, ~50 minutes.
This thick stew was tasty & warming after bouldering in the cold, but it was missing a little something. I stirred in a couple dollops of cashew cream. Mmm.
I loved it even more the next morning.
I am rediscovering lentils. What is your favorite way to make them?
