Red Lentil Pasta with Mushrooms, Onions, and Yams
You say that you need more protein? Want to eat more of a plant based diet? Cool! This dish is for you! Lentils are loaded with protein and fiber and Trader Joe’s is offering a Red Lentil Pasta that you will want to make a weekly staple for sure! What makes this dish unique is that I use the balsamic dressing from my recipe page that doesn’t have any oil. It’s filled with garlic, ginger, and coconut aminos, which makes it taste like a soy sauce. This dish has an asian flare and will spice up your lunch or dinner anytime! My kids love it too!
