Holy Cow...This is really good!

(This picture really doesn't do this dish justice. Some day I will learn to take better pictures).
This recipe is from one of my favorite websites: I made this today and had to take some to David right away (25 minutes away). He said it was great and licked his snap ware clean. Here it is:

"Protein Power Goddess Bowl"

Ahead of time, cook:

2 Cups brown rice in rice cooker

1.5-2 C. lentils on stove (twice as much water to lentils. bring to a boil and then simmer with lid on, until lentils are soft).

When lentils and rice are done, in a large pan, saute:

1/2 red onion

3 cloves crushed garlic

1 red and green pepper very thinly sliced (I think I only did about 1/2 of each)

1 large fresh tomato diced

8-10 sun dried tomatoes, sliced

After about five minutes, add in 4 cups of cooked lentils and stir well. Cook for a few minutes.

Then add in Tahini Sauce (which you make in food processor or Vita Mix):

1/4 C. tahini

1 clove garlic

1/2 C. fresh lemon juice

1/4 C. nutritional yeast

1/2 C. extra virgin olive oil (next time I will add half the oil and some warm water)

1-2 t. sea salt

fresh pepper to taste.

Blend until smooth

Add the tahini sauce and stir into lentils until smooth. Cook until it starts to bubble and then remove from heat. Then add:

2 Large handfuls (very large) mixed greens and spinach

1/2 C. fresh parsley, diced

Salt and Pepper to taste

Stir well. Portion rice in bowls and tops with lentil greens mixture. Put your feet up and enjoy the fact that you are feeding your body something beautiful and completely nutritious.
