I love buying spices at my hometown health store. They seem fresher, and they’re usually less expensive than buying an entire jar. Plus, I’m nerdy, and I like making my own labels.
Snobby joes are one of my favorite make-ahead meals. If you don’t like super spicy food, don’t add 3 tablespoons of chili powder like I did. It may cause crying.
Lentils are the base of this dish, and they’re pretty amazing, especially if you’re trying to find sources of vegetarian protein:
- in the legume family
- 18 grams of protein per cup (cooked)
- 16 grams of fiber
- excellent source of folate
- good source of iron, phosphorus, thiamin, and potassium
Although they probably would be better paired with naan, I tried a new recipe for honey whole wheat rolls that turned out pretty well. And yes, you have to use yeast.
It should be noted that snobby joes taste much better after being refrigerated overnight. Something magical happens to the flavors. Seriously.
Anyone else have a good lentil recipe? Leave a comment if you do!
I’m going to make a sourdough starter soon, and I’m really excited about this. It makes yeast bread baking a cinch. Tutorial to follow…
Happy Friday (and April)!
