Yellow Quinoa & Lentil shebang


It’s fall and we’re all falling down. Tripping on fallen birds nests (without any birds in them!!), blowing away in the wind, walking on crispy leaves instead of sunshine. It’s a trip, it’s a fall, it’s orange, yellow, red, and we love it. 

It’s the season for the cozy things like Netflix and chill on a whole other level and obviously cozy, warm, comforting food.

Heat it up from the inside (before the Netflix and chilling maybe…) with this super simple, spicy, yummy turmeric and curry quinoa with lentils. Eat it as a side or as a meal, I made a big portion and killed that for lunch. It was a brutal battle. RIP beloved grains and spices.

All you need is
1 cup of Quinoa
1 cup of Lentils
2 1/2 cups of water
Curry Powder
Cayenne Pepper

Simply boil the water and turn it down to medium after it starts boiling. Cook the quinoa with the lentils for about 15 minutes, until all the water is soaked up. Add all your spices while the quinoa and lentils are cooking. I don’t have the exact measurements for the spices, go after your taste buds. Some like it hot, some like it bland and boring. No, but spice it up after your preference. The turmeric will give the dish this nice yellow color, which is cute if you’re into yellow. I added some kale to get in those daily greens as well.

There you go, done! Simple as a bird flapping it’s wings in the am. Delicious and satisfying. Nice little shebang! I don’t know what the word shebang means but in my mind it’s a word that expresses a loud shout of joy, like “Oh man, this shit is shebaaang!”.
