Fall Salad with Beluga Lentils, Grapes and Roasted Pumpkin

By 20

After the incredible hot temperatures in the beginning of September, autumn finally settled in my neighborhood, right after the equinox. The light suddenly faded and a sort of airy fog took the place of the bright summer sun. All of a sudden, I noticed there were so many yellow leaves already, maybe because of the contrast with the gray in the sky.

It was so great – the effort, the sweat, the moments you think you’ll give up, they were all instantly forgotten when we were rewarded by the amazing scenery from the mountaintop. It wasn’t a really difficult trail, but for us, as beginners, it was quite a challenge, but we fully enjoyed it! We used to visit the mountains just to relax with a coffee in beautiful surroundings, but from now on…
