This is a very versatile recipe and by that I mean I didn't have most of the ingredients but I improvised and it still tasted really good! I used leeks rather than onions. I added fennel. I used traditional red beets (turned the broth a bit orange). I used half lentils and half quinoa. I added potato since I didn't have enough turnip. I used mixed greens (spinach and a variety of chard - no kale). I used chicken broth. I didn't have parsley or goat cheese so I added feta and crushed red pepper. Delicious! I call this a great "base recipe".
This recipe has potential with the base of the lentils, garlic and onion. I found the flavor of the turnips and beets off-putting, though I generally like both. Next time I will make it with chard instead of kale, and potatoes, carrots, butternut squash and fennel.
This is a phenomenal dish. I omitted the beets and turnips but included everything else. As a big meat eater, I can testify that this was a very satisfying dish as well as very savory. It's one of my winter staples!
