Vegetarian Legume Salad

Hey there!!  How is everyone?  So, hubby officially has been back to work since last Monday…Wooo Hooo very happy.  He has recovered from the Heart Attack so he got the go-ahead.  Of course, he still needs to be very careful because his heart has recovered by 50%.  As for me, I have been exhausted these past few months. I have been working 14 to 16 hours a day and taking care of hubby, house, charlie and a whole bunch of other things.  I could see how rundown I was, so I went to lay down on Saturday at around 7 in the evening and woke up the following day. 🙂  That should tell you how much I am due for a much-needed rest. 🙂

This is a great way to start the year or month in regards to going on a diet, or because you love eating a healthy salad.  Seriously, it really doesn’t get any easier than this recipe.  These types of ingredients need to be soaked overnight in water.  Boiled the following day adding in your favorite ingredients to make this a super delicious salad for lunch or dinner.  Just remember that there is no need to leave the Lentil in water overnight.  There is, of course, another option, buying store-bought Legumes.  Sometimes it is much easier and quicker than doing the whole overnight in the water process.  But if you were to use store-bought I would wash them and drain from excess salt.  

This is a bowl of Yumminess, for everyone to enjoy. try it out and let me know what you think. 


Have a great week!!  🙂

  1. Hello dear Sophie, this is a wonderful news! I’m very glad your hubby is back to work, is a good sign he’s well 😉 A good rest sometimes is a must my dear Sophie! Remember to take care of yourself too! 💕 This is really a bowl of yumminess 😋😋 I love it 😋😋 Have a wonderful day!
  2. Aww that's so great to hear about hubby! Sounds like he's doing well with his heart recovering to the 50% mark and being back to work so soon. But jees, you have been so, so busy yourself. You deserve a medal, or at least a week off! Is there any way you can get a little time out, even just a day, to rest and recuperate and look after YOU? Embarrassing as this may be to admit, I've never eaten lentils! Might have to add that to the 2020 bucket list because this sounds yummy 😉 Caz xxxx
    • Hey there sweetie...Thanks so much!! Unfortuantely at the moment I can't (for obvious reasons) but I am hoping that as of next month I can start to slow down. I am definitely in need of some rest. How are you doing?
