  • reneeeats Love this! We do this often. I keep steamed lentils from TJ’s on hand for this reason
  • DianaO love this! We sometimes do stacks of grilled red pepper, mushrooms, and tomato with hummus in between each layer -- all over a bed of greens - delicious and SO easy!
If you can swing it, a food processor makes all the difference!

  • DianaO Reneeeats, you should do it! well worth the investment!

  • DietIDdietitian Great idea, that looks amazing! I will definitely try it. So many ways to use it! Plus mangoes are so affordable right now. My supermarket is selling them for 49 cents each this week!
  • reneeeats 49 cents?! Holy cow. K I am stocking up on mangos. We would eat them daily if they were in the house. We also get raw mango and pickle them with red chili.

  • reneeeats Yes this definitely hit the spot! Can’t say this is an affordable long term solution but it’s a great way to fill in gaps during busy weeks and also get tested recipe inspiration.
