Two Dinners: Green Split Pea Dhal, Pizza/Madagascar Pink Rice with Tomato, Kale/Massaged Kale Salad (No Added Fat)
Today I served two dinners! My wife has three cousins who were arriving in the late evening for a Thanksgiving weekend visit. My daughter was hungry and I made a simple pizza (vegan cheese on her half) early dinner, along with a nice dhal. I put one part of green split peas and three parts of water, as usual, into my Instant Pot pressure cooker, as well as some garlic, thickly (1/2" or so) sliced carrot, and maybe 1" roughly hand-torn kale leaves, cooked for 8 minutes, then added a little lemon juice, ground cumin, and salt. I served this with a raw kale salad; everything was good!
Later, I made a similar dhal, but included jalapeno, ginger, and green beans, as well as, when the dish was done, some chili powder and black salt (kala namak). I also made Madagascar pink rice, cooked with diced tomato. I demonstrated then served a massaged kale salad with a slice of watermelon radish. Everybody seemed to enjoy the meal.
