Okay, this is the last lentil-based recipe I’ll be sharing for a while now. I’m sure it won’t be long before I’m itching to do another one though. Now that I’ve made the effort to try lentils in fun new ways I’m really inspired to keep doing it. I’m officially joining the lentil fan club!

Now, about The Big Southwest Lentil Salad Bowl! It’s quick, simple and bursting with fresh, nutritious ingredients. The base of this salad bowl is a protein rich blend of seasoned green lentils and black beans and a colourful array of bell peppers, purple onion, and baked sweet potato.
After that it’s all about the toppings (when isn’t it?) I went with shredded butter lettuce, fresh chopped tomato, finely chopped red and green onion, canned corn, sliced avocado, sriracha, lime juice and cilantro. No shortage of toppings here!…
