Meals in a Jar: Lentil, Fereek, Thai Rice, Barley and Noodle Fusion Soup

We have all bought or contemplated buying one of those cute “soups in a jar” as gifts. Pretty layered rows of rice, lentils,  noodle and soup base can make for a satisfying and easy soup. Have you thought of making your own? How about going one step further and creating entire balanced meals in a jar? One new book, the Meals in Jar cookbook, claims to be able to accomplish such a feat? Is it really possible for the general mass?

Brie Brazil Balls & Lentil Loaf in Tapioca Crepes with Brazilian Salsa

Brie Brazil Balls & Lentil Loaf in Tapioca Crepes with Brazilian Salsa is my answer to the folowing challenge: BLT Sandwich WITHOUT bacon, lettuce and tomatoes!

The new Creative Cooking Crew hosts really seem to have racked their brains in the last months to challenge the members with fun and crazy themes. Last month we had a Chopped (TV show) like challenge where we had to use Granny Smith apples, nut butter, vinegar and bacon in a recipe. And our hosts where just as cooky this month with this theme: BLT Sandwich WITHOUT bacon, lettuce and tomatoes! A famous movie quote came to mind: Toto we’re not in Kansas anymore! I also added a personal challenge here: to defy the concept of the sandwich. You see my ‘bread’ was the T of my BLT. Well actually I made a BBBLLT with Brazilian flair! Let’s explore my mysterious sandwich with tapioca crepes.
