I love weeks with good food holidays! I have plans for 3 kinds of pie on Wednesday (3.14! *snicker*) and of course St. Patrick's Day pretty much comes with a built in menu!
Vegetarian Taco Pie
Ricotta Stuffed Mini Bells with Spaghetti
Chicken with Mushroom Risotto
Chili and Cornbread
Falafel with Avocado Tzatziki Sauce
Corned Beef and Cabbage with Irish Cheddar Roasted Potatoes
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 1/2 cup dried green lentils, rinsed
2 1/2 cups water
24oz can crushed tomatoes
Heat oil in crockpot on high, sweat onion, pepper, and garlic until softened. Stir in chili and cumin powders and cook for another minute or two. Add the other ingredients. Stir to combine, cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4, or a combo of both... whatever works with your schedule!
Serve with sliced cheese on buns or toasted bread.
