If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably know how much I LOVE enchiladas. In the past, I have posted recipes for Chicken Enchiladas and Zucchini Enchiladas. Years ago, I posted Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini Boats, and they were such a hit that I started coming up with new stuffing ideas. These Chicken Enchilada-Stuffed Zucchinis are some of my favorites! You can see all my zucchini recipes here.

I love warm lentils, like in my Chicken and Lentil Soup and Lentils and Rice with Eggs and Bacon, but I was never really a fan of lentils in a salad (I’m a picky legume eater). But that all changed years ago when I bought a cold lentil salad at a health food store. I enjoyed everything about it – except for the high price. Lentils are so affordable to cook at home, so I knew I had to try making the salad myself. My homemade version was a fraction of the cost of the store-bought one, so save your money, and make this salad ASAP! It’s also vegan, high in fiber and protein, and only about 100 calories per serving.

I have a garden in my backyard, and every summer, I always end up with a ton of tomatoes. Making plum tomato sauce from scratch is an excellent way to use them up. I sometimes make an extra batch or two to freeze so I can eat it in the fall – it’s such a treat. If your garden is overflowing with grape or cherry tomatoes, try this grape tomato version.
