This savory mushroom lentil recipe is inspired by a delicious meal that I had for dinner (multiple times!) on our Disney cruise honeymoon a few years ago! I loved how the roasted portobello mushrooms were seasoned and the way they were sliced made it look just like pieces of chicken on top of a hearty pile of filling lentils.
What really put it over the top for me was the flavorful green pea pesto sauce! I love making different variations of pesto at home, but I had never tried a green pea version before! Who knew that basil and green peas would be such a delicious combination?!
I plated the meal like this because it’s exactly how they served it on the ship, isn’t it such a pretty presentation? Every time I make this dish, I feel like I’m back on the Disney Fantasy and sitting at a table in the Enchanted Garden restaurant!
