The loaf that fell apart and mixed greens recipe

On Sunday, we actually had time to prep out some meals.  It was nice being able to do that so I guess it’s fine the weekend was pretty uneventful. I’ve been dying to make a curried lentil loaf for a few weeks now, but I never had enough time to actually make one or I didn’t buy the right stuff from the store.  Basically bad planning kept me from making a lentil loaf.

Here’s a video showing a little of the meal prep this week and I give you tips!  Watch for the tips!

UntitledSo what exactly is the lentil loaf? It’s the vegetarian option for the meatloaf.  I didn’t think it would be so filling, but it was pretty amazing.  I just wish the thing would have stayed together instead of falling apart.  I think this happened because I didn’t mix all the ingredients enough.  I will try this again soon. Like I mentioned in the video, the recipe is from Martha Stewart’s Living and it was super easy to make. It didn’t take long to put together and I loved it because it cooked in the oven for an hour so I had could do other stuff while it baked. Untitled

I decided to serve this with some mixed greens because the loaf is so good but there’s definitely not enough green things on the plate.  I thought it this would be the perfect time to share a mixed greens recipe.

This is a super simple way to add some greens to a plate.
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 2 16oz bags of mixed greens
  • 1 160z bag of baby spinach
  • 1 onion (white or yellow), chopped
  • 1 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 can lite coconut milk (I used Taste of Thai)
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional) *I used cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Sautee onion in olive oil, if you choose, until onions become translucent on medium-high heat.
  2. Add the garlic and sautee for 1-2 minutes. You don't want the garlic to burn because it becomes bitter.
  3. Lower the heat to low-medium. Add the greens. Cook until all leaves have wilted down and have softened. I covered the pan to help the process along.
  4. When the greens are just about done, add the baby spinach. Cook until wilted into the other greens.
  5. Add salt and pepper and mix into greens, cook for about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Add entire can of lite coconut milk. Cook until coconut milk thickens a bit.
  7. Remove from heat and serve.

Willie’s task was cooking dinner which you saw in the video. He’ll put a post up about that later and I’ll be sure to link to it here. I don’t want to steal his content.
