Lentil Love and the Legendary Lentil Cookoff

August 15, 2013 in Vegetarian Entrees

I’m off to Lentil Fest! Please send prayers/thoughts/good vibes our way this week as the Mom half of Apron Strings (Donna!) competes in Pullman, Washington on Saturday in the National Legendary Lentil Cook-Off.

I will be competing as one of the five finalists with my Lentil Carrot Cake – stayed tuned next week for the recipe, to be posted after the contest, win lose or draw!

And so, to get us in the lentil mood, we are posting some of our favorite Lentil Love. Enjoy! And Wish me luck!


Refried Lentils. Why Didn’t I think of this before?

All American Meatless Loaf from Virgin Vegan: Everyday Recipes

This is day TWO of our week-long celebration of our latest cookbook creation,  “Virgin Vegan: Everyday Recipes for Satisfying Your Appetite”, and will be officially released on March 1st (though you can of course pre-order it now). This is perfect for experienced vegans, newbie vegans, and people who simply want to increase the amount of plant-based goodness in their nutritional lives.


At the end of the week, we’re giving away FIVE COPIES. You can enter each and every day, and we’ll tally up ALL the entries from all 5 posts to select our five winners via Random.org. Like so:

1. Any single comment counts as an entry all on its own (one per post)
2. Share that day’s recipe post on Facebook
3. Pin it on Pinterest
4. And of course, Tweet it.

The usual deal, in other words. Important note: when you post, please make sure you’re using a valid email address so we can get in touch with you for shipping info.

On to today’s sample recipe! See you tomorrow for even more!
