It’s too Hot to Make Soup Lentil Salad

27 May

I had bought some ingredients earlier in the week to make the Tarragon Thyme Lentil Soup from Veganomicon, so that I could have an easy to grab dinner later this weekend when I’m working late. This was before the temperature escalated. Sure, it dropped down again today…but I was still put off from soup. So I made salad instead.


-5 plum tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped

-3 carrots, grated

-1 c. french lentils (cooked)

-1 c. bulgur wheat ( cooked)

-1 shallot, finely chopped

-1 clove of garlic, minced

– approx 2 tsp paprika

– approx 1 tsp dried tarragon

-approx 1 tbsp white wine vinegar

– approx 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Sautee the garlic and shallot in the white wine vinegar with 1 tsp paprika and the tarragon. Add to lentils and mix in large bowl. Add vegetables and bulgur wheat. Season with salt and pepper, and the rest of the paprika. Add the olive oil and combine. Chill in the refrigerator.

Serve over spinach and top with goat cheese.
