Red Lentil Spread - Quick Change

In keeping with my bulk cooking trend, I made a quadruple batch of Russell's TVP this weekend. I also made a double batch of the Red Lentil Spread. Here's a different way to use the Red Lentil Spread that uses some of that TVP.

Cook about 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat couscous and spread it in a greased 9"x13" pan. Spread a layer of Russell's TVP over it and top with the Red Lentil Spread. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes. Serve with steamed greens or better yet, layer the greens into the pan before baking. This was just delicious.

Tonight we'll be having the last of the meals I made last weekend, White Beans with Tomatoes, although I think I can get two nights out of it. I just need to think up a creative way to use it the second night.

Another way we like to use the sausage is to make a batch of white beans, rinse 'em, steam up some greens or broccoli, and toss it with the sausage and a balsamic vinegarette. I call it Balsamic White Bean Salad but we eat it hot.

That sounds really good Ruthie, I'll have to try it soon.

I like layering, as well. There's something very pleasing to the eye about it.
