Hippy Slop

We've been making hippy slop ever since we became veggie, back in 1988!

It took a few times to learn how to cook lentils, but since then - we probably eat them more than anything else...

If asked, both of us would say - lentils are our favourite food!
They are warming, comforting & just delicious...

Not only that, but they are nutritious too...

Lentils not only lower cholesterol, they can also prevent blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after eating.
Lentils contain B vitamins, important minerals, fibre & protein.

We cook them gently with onions & garlic, herbs & spices.
And just adore them!

We're going to Hugo's home education group for a day long Halloween party...

Hope you all get plenty of treats!

"hippy slop"

LOL sounds like the sort of thing my Husband would say until he moved here and realised it is the staple food of 80% of the town :-)

Samhain blessings, enjoy it all!

Yum Yum, they are great in soup too x
To listen to my daughter, you would think all we ever ate we're lentils! I don't think that's true, but I do enjoy them.
Kath - We've used the name hippy slop for years, but I'm sure there's a story behind it & no doubt Sime will remember where it comes from... If I get to the bottom of it, I'll let you know!

Jane - we have them at least twice a week, usually more...

Sft - lentils are just so easy to cook & usually cheap too!

Becky - lentil soup is a favourite, especially with butternut squash & creamed coconut...

Andrea - hello, that's great!
