I'm sure it's no secret that I love pasta. Whole wheat rotini paired beautifully with this awesome homemade pasta sauce. I scored some fabulous fresh basil and have been using it. After I took the pic, I tore it and it made the perfect accent to the spicy tomatoes. I complimented this meal with a spinach salad topped with dry fried, marinated tofu cubes. No pic of that. I really need to bring MY dishes to this apartment. I only have one bowl (as seen above, below and in so many of the food pics I have taken since moving!) that I like to photograph food in.
I love lentils and cook them in so many different ways. I think this may be one of my favorites! It's my Chipotle Kissed Lentil Soup with Fresh Basil. The tomato/lentil combination is enhanced with the smallest amount of spice and smokiness. It is a simple soup, only relying on one dried spice and few veggies to bring out the flavor of the lentils. Fresh basil makes everything better.
These are 100% whole wheat sandwich buns. I love King Arthur's White Whole Wheat Flour. It is the best of both worlds, but 100% whole grain nutrition. I am going to slice them up and keep them in my freezer so they don't spoil.
