10 tips for Camping in the rain

We are heading out to camp this weekend and of course it’s looking like rain, but that isn’t going to keep us from going! Everything seems so much greener when in rains, different critters come out, fish are active. Have a positive attitude and enjoy yourself, laugh, and be silly. You’re going to get wet, you may getting muddy, things may go wrong…but that’s what makes it an adventure right?

Check out my recent post on Skout Organics Blog where I share 10 tips for tent camping in the rain.

Meatless Monday: Warm Lentil Salad with Roasted Veggies

Warm Lentil Salad with Roasted Veggies | Mintgrapefruit.com


Warm Lentil Salad with Roasted Veggies

gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free

2 cups green lentils
1/2 head cauliflower
1/2 bunch broccoli rabe, tough stems removed
5 shiitake mushrooms
3 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 tbsp olive oil
2-3 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp curry powder
Sriracha, Salt and Pepper to taste
Chopped raw almonds

Soak and Cook Lentils, I soaked for about 2 hours in warm water then cooked on medium-high heat until the lentils were tender.  While the lentils cook, preheat the oven to 450 degrees, rough chop the cauliflower and broccoli rabe, place in a large bowl.  Slice the mushrooms, add to the bowl.  Add the garlic, olive oil, liquid aminos, garam masala and curry powder. Toss well. Dump the veggie mixture on to a baking sheet and roast until the cauliflower is fork tender.

Remove and drain the lentils, transfer into the veggie bowl.  Once the veggies are finished roasting add to the lentils, toss to combine. Add sriracha, salt and pepper to taste.  Add more liquid aminos or spices to taste. Top with chopped almonds.

This is very unique I know, but the flavors worked. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
