Mexican red lentil stew with lime and cilantro, from Kalyn's Kitchen
Even though I didn't plant cilantro in my herb garden this summer, I have three or four plants that self-seeded from last year and popped up in the row of flat-leaf parsley. The plants seem happy there, and while I'm reluctant to let them go to seed again, I definitely want to give them space in my cooking. Perfect for Meatless Monday, this recipe for Mexican red lentil stew with lime and cilantro from Kalyn's Kitchen calls for a full cup of cilantro. Kalyn is a notorious cilantro lover, and I'm not, so I'd cut back to a tablespoon or two. And, because it's me, I'd have to add a bit more green Tabasco.
