Just before writing this post I was reading this article of things that you should never carry on a plane to eat. I just had to laugh because this recipe is exactly what you do NOT want to take on the plane. It can’t be prepared ahead of time, it is better if it is not out of the fridge for too long, this dish smells a lot, they smell delicious, but they smell anyway and they are super messy to eat.
It seems that I do not want you to prepare this recipe!! LOL, don’t get me wrong, it is the other way around. Please prepare them, they are delicious, just do not take them on the plane. Your seatmate will want to kill you, and the funny thing is that that exactly happened to me.
The girl that sat next to me in my last flight, was eating I do not know what that I felt like escaping through the window, NO, probably throwing away that smelly and messy food out of the window. But no, no way, I just had to sit and wait until she was done. Here is the recipe, hope you like it, and please do not take it on the plane with you. Eat it at home, in peace and with a huge bunch of napkins next to you.
Lentils are an important source of iron, vitamins and minerals. They have lots of fiber and vitamin B, and they are delicious and ready in a blink. Other than eating them on the plane, I find no other reason not to eat them. Here is the recipe, if you like it share it, the recipe and the blog.
