On the right, homemade lentil soup.
November is lentil soup time, fo sho. I made this vair simply- just sauteed celery, onion, and carrots in olive oil, added lentils, cumin, and garam masala, added veggie broth, and boiled for awhile.
On the left… ohhhhhhhhhh mannnnnnnn.
Yeastless whole wheat focaccia, another INCREDIBLE recipe from the AMAZING Astra. Seriously, she can do no wrong. Every recipe of hers I’ve made has been ridiculously delicious.
Despite having no yeast, it tastes… YEASTY! Ah, the miracle of beer in baked goods. I don’t like drinking it on its own but in baking it’s the bestest! And the whole wheat flour, along with making it healthy, makes for an incredibly hearty flavor. SO GOOD. And it took seriously five minutes to throw together- no kneading, no fuss, just toss it in the oven. Amazing!
The combination of the two simple dishes was utterly comforting and delicious. Again, YAY HOME!
