This is the dinner I cooked last night. I think it took me about 20 minutes from start to finish which, just between you and me, is heaps better then my performance in bed.

 

This is a good warm salad for winter, and is also a cracker if you’ve been lacking roughage in you diet. This little puppy will have you going from naught to a hundred in 3.4 seconds. And if you’re still having troubles with a bowel movement try a little sauerkraut as well. Guaranteed results.

 

Warm vegetable and lentil salad

 

1 carrot, cut into batons

1 zucchini, cut into batons

1 broccoli or bunch of broccolini, cut into similar sized pieces

a few batons of firm tofu

1 tomato, diced

1 handful parsley from the garden, chopped

1 handful rocket from the garden, chopped

a few pieces of soft cheese; camembert, brie, taleggio

balsamic vinegar

olive oil

salt and pepper

  • Put the carrot, zucchini, broccoli and tofu in a hot pan with some oil. Get some colour on them but keep them al dente (if you don’t know that one by now, look it up)
  • Toss with tomato, parsley and rocket. Dress with olive oil, balsamic and a fair bit of salt and pepper
  • Divide into bowls and top with a few pieces of cheese
  • Eat, and feel the healthy punch you in the face
