Tuesday Tea - Korean lentil paddies

Tuesdays are for inspiration and if this combo of crispy lentil paddies with noodles in the spirit of Asian cuisine paired together with our cold-brewed Tuesday tea isn't an inspiration enough, I don't know what is. Jennie Walldén inspires this recipe, thank you!
