Cooking…

So, I’m making up recipes…and we’ll see what comes out. It’s not that I know a lot about cooking or that I have any gift in this area, I was just messing around.

This was the stuffing I made for a lasagna. I actually added cottage cheese as a layer, so this recipe was only vegetarian but it turned out very yummy.

That was the lasagna before it went into the oven.

Then I made banana bread…because we had some really old bananas that needed help. The wax paper is a trick I learned somewhere so that I don’t have to smear butter on the pan to keep it from sticking. It saves calories and keeps the desert healthy. This recipe, I changed from the one on Oh She Glows, I just added chocolate chips. So yummy!

This is my own recipe for a lentil stew. I use green lentils, rinse them, add two large onions chopped up, some garlic diced (probably about two tablespoons; so quite a bit), I chopped up some sweet potatoes, added a few bay leaves and cooked it. After it came to a boil, I let it simmer for about 20-30 minutes and got this.

It’s actually super-good for you, because lentils are amazing, full of protein, fibre, iron and magnesium and the sweet potatoes are really good food as well. It has no oil or fat in the recipe, so it’s super healthy. Oh, add some salt. I can’t tell you how much I added because I did it bits at a time and completely lost track of the amount. Probably 2 teaspoons? But it depends on taste and amount.

So that’s what’s been cooking in my kitchen lately. What are you up to?
