Legumes

Many of us have found that food plays a large part in our physical and mental health. Some of us struggle with our relationship with food. What are you eating (or not eating) these days?

Legumes

Beyond black beans.. Onward, legumes, onward!

Today's attempt:

Lentil Curry

lentils
onions
garlic
ginger
curry paste
garam masala
tumeric
sugar
cayenne
tomato puree

I may have already messed up because I think I overloaded the crockpot. We'll see. I am hoping for a reasonable cook-time of, say, 7-8 hours, rather than the 30+ hour black bean debacle. :)

I've decided, at least for the cooler season, to attempt to add legumes into my weeknight routine. They are high in calories, but if I pay attention to portion size, it should be ok. They have protein, are filling, and I can prepare them in advance so all I have to do after work is heat them up in the microwave.

I've been scared off the zucchini gazpacho. I'll get back to it, but the last time I cooked a giant patch of zucchini for the gazpacho is the first time I had the Meniere's 8 hour nightmare. I know these things are not connected, but I've avoided the mass zucchini cooking.

Anyway, I am hoping for the best with the lentils. But, as I said, I think I overfilled the crockpot. Maybe I should just take out some of the contents. Hmm. Maybe.
