Green Lentil and Pea Curry

Hey Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

Today’s recipe is a delicious lentil and pea curry. I think this was my first time cooking with green lentils and they were easy to cook with, they did take a little longer than the red split lentils I’ve been using recently but that was expected. Green lentils are great because they have a slight peppery taste and remain quite firm once cooked.

I’d recommend adding a little sprinkle of each of the spices depending on which ones you like best but a mixture of everything will make a super tasty curry. I’ve been making curry type recipes a lot recently because they are so quick and easy to make and really perfect for these cold evenings. If the texture looks a bit odd it is because I also added in some meatless mince to stay in line with the vegetarian theme but that is optional.

Recipe: Green lentil and pea curry (serves 2/3)

Ingredients

200g green lentils, soaked overnight

1 tsp oil

1/3 onion, diced

1 garlic, crushed

Chilli flakes

Paprika

1/2 tsp brown sugar

Turmeric

Cumin powder

Garlic salt

1 tsp tomato puree

50ml coconut milk

600ml vegetable stock

100g frozen peas

Method

Heat oil in a pan and cook the onions for 5 minutes until soft.

Add the garlic and spices, cooking for a further 5 minutes.

Next, add the puree, milk and vegetable stock. Stir well sprinkle in the sugar and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the frozen peas to the pan adding more water if needed and cook for another 5 minutes until the lentils are fully cooked.

Prawn and Red Lentil Curry

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

Excuse the messy bowl but this prawn and red lentil curry was so so good! Lentils are great in sauces because when they cooked in sauces they help to make it thicker naturally by soaking up the liquid. This curry is full of flavour and great for dipping. It’s a nice recipe because you don’t have to add too many ingredients, you get most of the flavours from the vegetable stock, I’ve added a sprinkle of chilli powder for a little spicy kick and a pinch of sugar for sweetness and that’s it.

This is another recipe which I didn’t really measure but you can tailor it depending on how many portions you want to make and also if you like a thick or thin curry sauce.

I served this curry with kale fried dumpling (recipe here), but grains or flatbread would also go well.

Recipe: Prawn and red lentil curry

Ingredients

Oil

Onion

Red lentils

Vegetable stock

Chilli powder

Sugar

Prawns

Method

  • Firstly, heat a little oil in a pan and gently cook the onion for a few minutes until soft, then stir in the lentils and vegetable stock cook according to packet instructions or until fully cooked.
  • Once the lentils are cooked, add the chilli, sugar and prawns cooking for a few minutes until the prawns are cooked and serve.
