Fava Beans – the woke version

Title: “Lentil Love”

[The scene opens with two friends, Sam and Alex, having a conversation over the phone.]

Sam: Hey, Alex, what’s up?

Alex: Not much, just chilling. How about you?

Sam: Same here. Hey, you know what I’ve been thinking about lately?

Alex: What’s on your mind?

Sam: Veganism, man. I’ve been trying to cut down on my meat consumption and embrace a more plant-based lifestyle.

Alex: That’s awesome, Sam! I’ve actually been on the same journey. It’s so important for our health and the environment.

Sam: Totally agree. So, check this out, I found this amazing recipe for a lentil dish that’s to die for!

Alex: Oh, really? Tell me more.

Sam: Alright, so you take some organic lentils, soak them overnight, and then cook them with diced tomatoes, onions, garlic, and a blend of herbs and spices.

Alex: That sounds delicious! What else do you add?

Sam: Well, here’s the secret ingredient – a hint of smoked paprika to give it that extra depth of flavor.

Alex: Yum! I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

Sam: Wait, it gets better. Once it’s all cooked, you garnish it with some fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice. It’s like a flavor explosion in your mouth!

Alex: Wow, that sounds amazing, Sam. I’m definitely going to give that recipe a try.

Sam: Oh, and one more thing. You know how some people like to add bacon or ham to their lentil dishes?

Alex: Yeah, I’ve heard of that.

Sam: Well, I’ve got a better idea. How about we skip the animal products and instead, we add some roasted mushrooms for that smoky, umami flavor?

Alex: Brilliant! That’s a much more compassionate and sustainable choice.

Sam: Exactly! Plus, it’s healthier too. Win-win!

Alex: I’m all in, Sam. Let’s whip up some lentil love together sometime soon.

Sam: Sounds like a plan, Alex. Can’t wait to share the veggie goodness with you.

[They both share a laugh and continue discussing their newfound love for plant-based cooking, ending the call with a promise to cook together soon.]
