Hello dearest ladies!
I hope you are all well.
Summer is hitting us hard in Barcelona and Thomas and I have been looking for fresh recipes to complement the hot evenings that seriously lack a gentle breeze…
Since the little one goes to sleep between 9 and 10, and for more than 7 or 8 hours in a row, Thomas and I are able to dine together again, and I have been very inspired lately to try out new recipes.
I have been picking recipes from Beth’s great birthday present (Thank you Bethie!) Cuisine Legere, and I wanted to share with you this recipe which is very easy to make, and will make you feel full, although it has very little calories (yay!)
I also know you Williamses love lentils! So here goes:
Ingredients for 4 people:
Quinoa – 200g
Half a cucumber
6 spring onions
1 orange (we will use peel and juice)
Lentils – 400g (I used the already cooked ones)
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons of tarragon (estragon) (I used dill instead)
1 tablespoon vinegar
100g feta cheese
Start by cooking the quinoa. They usually give you the instructions on the pack. If not, cook it in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes, dry, set aside.
Peel and dice the cucumber, set aside.
Cut the onions and the shallot and put them in two different bowls.
In a small pan, cook the shallot a few minutes with the olive oil. Add the tarragon.
In a bowl, mix the shallot and tarragon with the quinoa, cucumber, onions, vinegar, and the orange juice and peel. Add the feta cheese right before you serve.
A low fat guilt free treat for the summer. I hope you’ll like it as much as Thomas and I did!
