lentil-walnut-loaf-01It has been very hot here in Southern Ontario over the last week or so and I have to say this is one of the driest springs I can remember. Normally I would be doing a happy dance but this is the year we laid sod and re-seeded at least half our back garden. I also moved all my beds and added a kitchen garden and herbs garden so a little help from mother nature would be greatly appreciated.

The effort has begun to pay off as the grass is due to be mowed this weekend and the garden is thriving. I am now just waiting for the veggies and herbs to mature so I can start using them. I buy a lot of fresh herbs from the supermarket but for the amount that is available in a package is often much more than I need. Herbs such as thyme and rosemary keep well for a longer period of time but the more delicate leaved herbs such as basil must be used more quickly. It will be nice to be able to go out into the garden and cut exactly what I need.

This loaf has a lovely nutty flavour with a great little crunch and a sweet finish. It is very hearty and paired well with fresh sweet peas and a few fried Asian white sweet potatoes.
