Even if I'm not planning to do it right. What's new?
I posted about some healthy juices the other day, for those looking for a way to stay healthy between the holidays (never sacrifice indulgence with your friends and family - that's where the balance part of life comes in, it's not healthy to be too obsessed with health)! Most of us, however, probably do better with healthy food than just healthy juice.
The Lentille Elodie was also a heart stew, not some watery soup, and was spiced excellently. It was flavorful with big chunks of tomatoes and carrots, as well as a nice kiss of anise that made the soup taste perfect for late fall. I had it for lunch on a rainy day with a chunk of artisan bread and it was perfect!
|Don't worry - it's only that liquidy on top - there are a lot of lentils underneath, it's thick if you mix it all up!|
The Cottage Pot Pie was a real treat for me, because I actually really love pot pie-type dishes, but I don't make it for myself (not worth the hassle when you're cooking for one) and whenever it's offered in restaurants, it usually isn't vegetarian. This one, however, was! Sweet peas, carrots, and broccoli all combined in a creamy herb sauce and topped with a delicious layer of mashed potato. So hearty, so English winter, so satisfying - it's just perfect for a Wuthering Heights kind of day!
I definitely cuddled up with an Austen novel (I prefer her stuff to the more somber Bronte works) and this Cottage Pot Pie on a cold night and it was great.
Lastly, but definitely not last in my enjoyment, I was really positively surprised by the Greek Lasagna. I'm not a huge pasta person, but this was carb-y, rich, and full of interesting flavors. Sauteed onions, zucchini, mushrooms, tofu, and parsley are combined with nutty whole grain pasta (YAY) in a mint-almond tomato sauce.
Speaking of things I've never tasted (or even imagined) before...you will definitely not be bored with your Macro-Mediterranean order! Just the pleasure of getting to try all of these delicious cuisines, without even considering how healthy and convenient the service is, would be enough to make it worth it!
