Spinach Chickpeas and Mushrooms

We have been staying at my inlaw’s house during our kitchen renovation.  My mother in law made this awesome Spinach, Chickpeas and Mushrooms dish.  It’s super simple to whip up and naturally I had to share it with all of you.  This Spinach, Chickpeas and Mushrooms recipe could be eaten as a side dish, or you can serve it over rice or quinoa for a complete meal.  Spinach, mushrooms and chickpeas are 3 of my favorite foods.  If you love chickpeas as well, you may also like my maple cinnamon roasted chickpeas or my epic chickpea spread.

Easy Lentil Loaf

Ever  since I made my Lentil Sloppy Joes, I have been wanting to make more recipes with lentils.  So I made this Easy Lentil Loaf.  I searched Pinterest and came up with this recipe.   I used that recipe as a base, but had to change out many of the ingredients to use what I had on hand.  It came out so good, that I made it a second time and made notes of all my changes.  The original recipe is very tasty, but it is a little too involved for me.  I omitted several ingredients and also some cooking steps.  I hope you enjoy my version of this Easy Lentil Loaf.  If you also enjoy lentils, you may like my Red Lentil Soup.

Lentil Loaf - My Whole Food Life

My husband loved this so much, that he wanted me to make it a 3rd time in a row! I ate my lentil loaf with a side of roasted veggies.  You can also serve it with a salad or just eat it as is.  Anyway is delicious.   It also freezes well.  I think you could also sneak some extra veggies in here for your kids.  Spinach or carrots might go well.  Maybe even cauliflower.

Lentil Sloppy Joes

Omg you guys!  Lentil Sloppy Joes!  Where have these been my whole life???  Seriously delish.  The first batch of lentil sloppy joes went so fast that I had to immediately make a second batch.  I got the idea when someone posted a picture of their dinner in the Facebook group I run.  The girl who posted said she made up the recipe in her head with no measurements.  So I searched Pinterest and found this recipe.  I made mine slightly different with a few less ingredients.  Trying to keep things simple.  I used lettuce wraps for my lentil sloppy joes, but you can also use burger buns if you prefer.  If you love lentils, you may also like my red lentil soup and my green lentil salad.
