Lentil, cucumber and mushroom salad
Lentils are such a fantastic food source, and this is an interesting way to have them. This recipe is good hot or cold and so is ideal for lunch at work or dinner in the evening. I find lentils are good for my blood sugars and energy levels. Ingredients 1 cup puy lentils 12 chestnut mushrooms, thinly sliced 1 cucumber, thinly sliced Dressing 4tbs olive oil 4tbs lemon juice 1tsp salt 1tsp curry powder 2tsp tamari ( a thick, less salty soy sauce) 2tbs cider vinegar Method 1.
