Spicy Lentil & Mushroom Salad

Afbeelding 1

It is the first rainy autumn day since long. Although I would’ve loved to stay in the summer mood for longer, the autumn always brings new things about. And I have to admit that I’m not the strongest concerning my motivation for studying with sunny weather, so at least there is one positive aspect of autumn. Furthermore I am looking forward to the colors. Red, brown, orange, purple. It’s such a diverse color palette, I cannot wait for that any longer. So I thought this salad would be perfect for today. It’s still a salad, so it fits the summer feeling, but is warming and has the colors of autumn.
