I know this has nothing to do with the red lentil curry coconut recipe you have been asking for but I just couldn’t resist! Who knew that psychedelics came in the form of cauliflower?Also for anyone who doesn’t think cauliflower is nutritious, it is a cruciferous vegetable which includes broccoli, kale, collard greens, brussel sprouts and cabbage…full of health-promoting nutrients! So eat up people!
Okay now for the red lentil curry coconut recipe but first I have to credit my incredible foody friend Julia Hellerman for this recipe. Here is her blog: http://adaba.wordpress.com.
- Chop and saute 1 onion, 1-2 stalks of celery, 1 large carrot, chopped kale stems in extra virgin olive oil on low heat.
- Add 6-8 cups water or that homemade veggie broth you made and 2 Cups Red Lentils (rinse lentils first).
- Add fresh grated ginger and turmeric (1-2tsps), any kind of curry blend or if you have any of the following spices (coriander, curry powder, graham masala) or all of them.
- Bring to a boil, simmer for 30-45 min, or to desired tenderness of lentils, add a can of coconut, and some fresh lime juice.
- Saute separately some cabbage and spinach in garlic and add to soup. Salt to taste.
- Make some brown rice on the side and combine.
