I couldn’t be bothered to go to the store today, so when it came to dinnertime, I rummaged in my fridge and found half a bell pepper, a carrot, a zucchini, and a couple of peppers. I was all prepared to do my standard roast veg & couscous concoction when I decided on a whim to add some red lentils, too. I tossed a vegetable bouillon cube, some cumin and cayenne pepper in with the lentils, and let that cook while I chopped and cooked the vegetables. It was rainy and grey outside, and I in my very yellow and bright kitchen wanted food that was colourful and warm.
It’s not the prettiest of dishes, but it works. Next time I’ll put more spices in, just to give it a little more kick.
