Curried potato and lentil wrap

I'm back! Thanks for your patience as I took some time off in August to visit family. Luckily for me, they live in San Diego so it was lots of quality family time, wonderful food, warm weather and ocean breezes. It's good to be back though, and back in the kitchen.

Vegan Greek Salad Wrap with Lentils

Green Lentil Bowl with Farro, Mushrooms, and Spinach

This green lentil bowl starts with lentils cooked with a bay leaf until tender, and is finished with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Chewy farro, also finished with lemon, form the base of this bowl along with the lentils. Hearty button and shitake mushrooms are sauteed along with thyme and a bit of sherry, then layered over the grains and lentils. Finally, spinach is wilted along with garlic and shallots. These healthy greens finish off the bowl.
