AWOL...roasted red bells go nice in that bbr/sprouted lentil salad, too, btw. If you wait 'til the lentils have about a 1/4" tail, they're more tender than on the first day they've sprouted. Higher protein/carb and protein/fat ratio, as well. Nice to be back.

Will be trying some of the recipes even though it is freezing here. Thanks:)
Earlier in week stayed with Eldest on way back from Darwin and she made a most delicious salad with pears, basil, red onion, peppers etc.
Decided to try something similar when I got home to find that son-in-law and grandson had arrived for a visit.
Mine was nothing like Eldest's except for the pears....she is an absolute "master" cook:)) However it wasn't bad and I used just what I had on hand.
Poached 3 pears cut into quarters in brown sugar and water until just firm, microwaved a bunch of broccolini cut in small lengths & green beans snapped, added red pepper, finely sliced red onion, 2 cloves of finely crushed garlic, half a cup of roasted cashews and tossed it all with lime juice, a good dash of white balsamic vinegar and olive oil. (acidic dressing was balanced with the sweetness of the poached pears.)
Served with herbed rissoles (meatballs)
