The weather says it is time for soups and stews! This is one of my favorites - simple, hearty, and high adaptable (from Smitten Kitchen). Canned lentils are allowed on the Low FODMAP diet, just be sure to keep the portion size to 1/2 cup per serving.
I was inspired by an article in Bon Appetit which described cooking with a "mis en place" style. It involves prepping on Sunday with sauces/condiments/vegetables that can get you through the week. There is nothing novel here in the approach of readying large batches of food, but the idea of a weekly sauce is new. I started with the Miso-Tumeric Dressing and Nori Mayonaise. With rice, a protein, and sautéed vegetables, it was a delicious and easy meal that we enjoyed for dinner and then again for 2 lunches. The Nori mayo, however, will not be made again in our house...way too strong and it looked very unappetizing by day 2.
Next up for this coming week: Momofuku's Ginger Scallion Sauce
Nothing says summer like a cool refreshing gazpacho! I love the addition of avocado in this soup. If available, colorful heirloom tomatoes give it an amazing flavor and beautiful hue.
