I love when a salad fills me up and is a full meal. There is so much flavor in this one dish and it is so filling, you will feel light and satisfied and because of the butternut squash you wont be hungry until the morning!
Papayas are a less exciting mango to me. But in Israel when mango season is nearly over we have to compromise. I love to use papayas in salad because its sweetness enhances this dish and the salt and vinegar in the dressing brings out its flavors in a more savory way.
I love calling these fries. Even though they aren’t fried or crunchy, they are such a great flavorful and meaty side to a burger.
I used a blend of black and regular lentils (cooking them for the same amount of time) It really helps to place the mixture in the fridge for a bit to hold the burger together more but if you want to eat it right away, just be very cautious when turning it over, best with a spatula and spoon together. If you are eating the burger with cheese, place the cheese on top immediately after flipping it over to the second side.
In Israel this fish is called Lokus. In America it is called Dusky grouper bass. It looks like flounder but is buttery like sea bass. Ask your local fish store if they have it! If not, use fresh flounder or tilapia.
