Lentil Spinach Salad with Avocado

I have had 2 big bags of green lentils I needed to use up.  So today was the day to make this Lentil Spinach Salad with Avocado.  Avocado makes everything better, doesn’t it?  This lentil salad came out really good and it’s easy to make.  Budget friendly too.  If you like lentils too, you may also like my lentil sloppy joes and my lentil loaf.

This makes a lot.  About 4-5 servings.  I think it is better the next day after the flavors have had time to marinate.  It’s a great dish for a crowd.  If you are new to lentils, this is the perfect dish to start with.

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes

Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes.  I was on Facebook the other day and I came upon this recipe.

I really liked the idea of using avocado in desserts.  I have had success using it in my flourless brownie bites and my chocolate chip avocado cookies.

So I thought I would attempt cupcakes.  The orginal recipe had way to much sugar and it was also not gluten free.  I came up with a version that has less sugar, is oil free and is gluten free.  It’s also vegan of course!

This recipe fits all diets.  It’s gluten free, vegan and even paleo.  If you wanted to add some extra protein, I think black beans would go well in here also.

Or even quinoa.  I thought they were just perfect this way. I am a wimp with spicy food, but if you like things spicy, you can also add jalapenos.  My husband would love that!

I let my brownies chill overnight in the fridge.  They set up great.  I bet you could speed up the process by putting them in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour.

I used macadamia nuts in this, but any nut will do.  I bet sunflower seeds would work well too.
