OMG! Finally protein rich healthy vegan and gluten free snack is ready to be posted and shared. I can’t believe that these Lentil Mustard Green Sticks could taste sooooo delicious and smell so enticing.
I must say that using mustard green leaves in this recipe was a big risk yet I went ahead since I was adamant to include greens into my diet (My New Year resolution) if you remember from my earlier post. Love it! I simply love this appetizer and can be served to the guests if you are playing the role of a host over the weekend.
To make it an easy and quick recipe I cooked red lentils and mustard green leaves in water until soft. Mixed all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, flattened the soft dough between palms and baked in a preheated oven for an hour or so and served warm with delicious spicy sauce/ketchup. This recipe has quite a good shelf life and can be refrigerated in an air tight container for almost a week. Just warm it in a toaster oven and get a crispier texture if desired.
Now healthy snacking has become so easy and I don’t wonder staring at my pantry as to what to eat. It’s a complete healthy snack with the right combination of protein, calcium, fiber, iron, and good fats.
What are you waiting for? Bake these Lentil Mustard Greens Sticks now, enjoy your healthy diet and maintain your desired weight without sacrificing taste. 🙂
