Lentil Quinoa and Carrot Supper


  • 1 C lentils (rinsed and sorted)
  • 1/2 C quinoa (rinsed and sorted)
  • 2-3 C water
  • 1 C red wine
  • 1 C greens (I used spinach)
  • 2-3 carrots, chopped in rounds
  • 1 C cauliflower, chopped in bite-sized pieces
  • 1 green garlic, chopped (or 1 clove regular garlic)
  • 1 T za'atar seasoning
  • 1 t smoked sea salt
  • pepper
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1 t paprika
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1 T olive oil
  • parmesan cheese, shaved, for topped
  • parsley, for topping


  1. Heat medium to large pan on stove. Add oils. Add carrots, cauliflower and seasonings. Cook 5 minutes, or until veggies are getting tender, over med heat. Add green garlic, cook 2 minutes or so.
  2. Add water, wine, lentils and quinoa. Bring to a boil. Cook about 15-20 minutes, or until lentils are tender. Add more water if necessary. Add greens about 5 minutes before serving. Water should be absorbed, not like soup - unless you want soup!
  3. Serve topped with shavings of parmesan cheese and parsley, along with some good bread.
