A New View of Healthy Eating: Daily Healthy Recipes by Melanie Albert: Really Quick Intuitive Lunch: Dolmas and Farmers’ Market Left-overs

Very often I like to intuitively create a very, very quick lunch using left-overs in my refrigerator. I love Dolmas and used these stuffed grape leaves as the inspiration for the lunch. With a Mediterranean focus, I added farmers’ market organic veggies and rich black Beluga lentils. Plus, I really wanted to enjoy fresh light pea sprouts from Steadfast Farm and bright edible flowers from Maya’s Farm.


You’ll notice in the ingredient list I do not include amount of the different ingredients. In making an intuitive dish, use your intuition to choose a few of your favorite veggies and their amount. A dish created this way will be different and delicious every time.



Ingredients in order of plating…

  • Black Beluga lentils
  • Dolmas, sliced
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Local yellow and red tomatoes
  • Romanesco tips
  • Capers
  • Sea salt
  • Pea shoots
  • Edible flowers
