Trim stalk ends of the green beans and snap peas. Blanch green beans in large pot of boiling water for 3-4 minutes, drain and place them directly into bowl with ice water to stop them from cooking further. Drain and set aside
Repeat with the sugar snaps, only blanch one minute
Roughly chop almonds, toast slightly on skillet or in the oven
In small mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, orange zest and salt & pepper. Set dressing aside
Combine baby mustard greens, green beans, snap peas, and hot peppers in large mixing bowl then toss with dressing
Garnish with almonds and chives, seasoned as needed with sea salt and pepper. Enjoy!
Heat a large Dutch oven over medium to high heat. Coat the bottom with olive oil, then add the onion, carrots, and celery and cook until crisp-tender.
Add the lentils, potatoes and chicken or vegetable stock, starting out with about 6 cups. Stir in the wine. Add the bay leaf and thyme. Let come to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered until lentils are tender and done, about 1 1/2 hours. *Be careful to watch the liquid level and add more stock as needed. Stir occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When lentils are done, mash the potatoes against the side of the pan with a spoon then stir them. This will make it creamy. Stir in the turnip and mustard greens. Let come to a boil again, then simmer for about 30 minutes.
Top with a scoop of brown rice and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
We suggest that replacing white rice with brown rice is a healthier option.

We saved green beans for day 30 of #vegout2021 With dozens of cultivars, from broad, meaty Roma to thin, delicate French filet beans, pods can be round or flat, and come in multiple colors: green, purple, yellow, or mottled, so they don't have to be a predictable choice.
