Holiday Lentil & Buckwheat Loaf

Not the sexiest name, I know, but trust me, it’s exactly what your holiday table is missing.

Have you ever spent holiday dinners eating Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce? I have to admit, this sounds pretty good to me right now, but it is nice to have a thoughtful (non-turkey-shaped tofu disaster) addition to this for those who are on a health-conscious, plant-based path.

Even those who eat everything around the holidays will like this recipe (I mean, probably not my Dad, but like, most people who like food). It has all of the flavours of a traditional stuffing, has a good hearty texture and could even be served in place of stuffing without any song and dance.


Stuffing flavoured KALE CHIPS!

Stuffing Flavoured Kale Chips

For several reasons, I have come to believe that kale chips might be the best holiday food:

1.) We are all rushing around during this time of year and can forget to think about ourselves and the grocery shopping we need to do, leading to eating the peppermint bark that a client/friend gave us for breakfast, lunch and possibly dinner (and dessert).

2.) It’s a little chilly to get enthusiastic over our beloved green smoothies.

3.) Unlike fresh veggies, we can store bags of kale chips in our cupboards/purse/car/winter coat pockets so that we always have green veggies around for when we realize we haven’t eaten and start thinking about that peppermint bark on our counter at home.
