lentils and cauliflower with gremolata salad




Above is a Lentil and Cauliflower Stew topped with a Gremolata Salad. Gremolata is a traditional Italian condiment of chopped parsley, minced fresh garlic and lemon zest. It is a great punch of flavor. I decided to create a cooling salad using cucumber, roasted peppers and toss it with gremolata.

The salad adds a different dimension to the old stand-by of lentil stew, which, in this case, also contains cauliflower that has been steamed with the stew. 

This was a great variation on a favorite legume dish.

Cost Breakdown

gremolata: $1
cucumber, pepper: $2
lentil: $.50
broth: $1
cauliflower: $2
onion, oil: $.25 

Total to make 5 servings:
$6.75

  1. VA, you did it again. Came up with a winner recipe that is!
    Other than forgetting the to make the salad and not blending the lentils, your creation was copied with great success, and "make again" request.
    This bears repeating - You are a culinary genius.
    Thanks for keeping me cooking.
