the doctor ordered more lentils

because those lentil burgers were so effing good i pretty much made the same recipe again. only this time i served it over rice.

i boiled the lentils until they were done and absorbed all the water. red lentils are best for this. then in a seperate bowl i mixed the garlic, cumin, garlic powder, chili flakes, cilantro, onions, and mustard. i also put diced cherry tomatoes in the bowl. when the lentils were done i mixed it all together while it was hot but didn't let it cook more. i like a really strong garlic flavour so if you don't then feel free to cook it more.

served it over jasmine rice. yummmmmmmmy!

for dessert, i found this recipe for healthy banana cookies. i've made something similar before so i wanted to try again. the recipe is very easy:

3 ripe bananas
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup dates, pitted and chopped. (you can also use raisins, dried cranberries, chocolate chips etc.)
1 teaspoon honey
2 tablespoons peanut butter (we use natural crunchy peanut butter. much better)

preheat oven to 350 degrees F
mash bananas
mix everything in a bowl. leave to sit for 15mins
put cookies in for 20mins.

i took them off the pan right after i took them out and they left a bit of residue. perhaps i will grease the pan with margerine next time. i might also add some cinnamon.
