For those of you that follow me you know that Saturdays have become my day to post my bookmarks. I post what I have found across the blogosphere that has inspired me. I am going to try to devote Fridays to showing you what I have done with those inspirations. Today I am doing another "Your Recipe - My Kitchen" post.
When Joanne at Eats Well With Others posted this recipe for Lentil Mango Picadillo I was intrigued. First of all any recipe with cilantro and cumin is sure to grab my attention, my all time favorite spice and herb. Then she added mango and almonds - YUM! And of course lets not forget the main ingredient, the lentils, I have never met a legume I didn't like ( actually I'm not a huge Lima Bean fan but that's another story.) I loved this dish! I have been trying to find more meatless dishes and this was perfect. I was nervous at first because I thought hubby, who needs a pretty hearty meal to feel full, would miss the meat in this dish. He didn't miss it at all, he really liked this dish too. I chose to serve this Picadillo over Quinoa - it was perfect. And to stay true to the heat lover I am - I did add a bit of my favorite El Yucateca Hot Sauce - I couldn't resist.
