Curried Lentils and Rice

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

So when I was making this recipe I never had curry powder in the cupboard so I looked online and found a mixture of spices (turmeric, cumin, coriander and ginger) that when combined make a great curry alternative. I have really been enjoying eating lentils recently, they have an earthy and nutty flavour to them that would really compliment any dish.

Lentils are a great staple food to have in your cupboard because you can sprinkle them into most dishes, like curries, soup or any rice dish. They are a great source of fibre and protein and a healthy gluten free option. This recipe overall is full of flavour and definitely one to try!!

Recipe: Curried rice and lentils (serves 1-2)

Ingredients

1 tsp olive oil

1/4 small onion, finely diced

1/2 tsp curry powder (or an even mixture of turmeric, cumin, coriander and ginger)

Sprinkle of thyme and salt

300ml boiling water (you may need more)

48g lentils

64g rice

Method

  • Heat the oil in a pot for 1 minute before adding the onion, cook this for 5 minutes on a low heat stirring regularly. Add the curry powder, thyme and salt, cover with a lid for 2 minutes to continue cooking.
  • The onions should be slightly soft at the point, add the boiling water to the pot and bring to boil.
  • Next add the lentils and rice, leave on a gentle simmer until fully cooked, roughly 20 minutes but keep checking.
  • Give the ingredients a final mix to combine everything together and serve.
