Vegan Cooking #2

May 15, 2015


Čas je za novo kuharsko objavo! :) Tokratni recept je zelo slasten "curry" z lečo, nizkokaloričnim super živilom, ki je polno beljakovin, mineralov in vlaknin. Vse sestavine lahko najdete v večjih trgovinah ali v trgovinah z zdravo prehrano, nekaj izmed njih je celo iz Dm-a, tako da nimate nobenih izgovorov, da ne bi preizkusile recepta. :)
 Kot običajno nimam točnega recepta, se opravičujem ampak vse delam po občutku. Potrebujete pa:
- lečo, ki je bila namočena čez noč,
- čebulo,
- česen,
- mleko (za currye je značilno kokosovo mleko, jaz se ga malo bojim, ker enkrat nisem imela dobre izkušnje z njim, tako da sem uporabila kar riževo mleko),
- paradižnikovo omako in
- začimbe (sol, poper, kajenski poper, ingver, kumino, kurkumo in curry). 
 Najprej na kokosovem olju prepražite čebulo in česen. Nato dodajte začimbe, jih le rahlo popražite na zmernem ognju, ter vlijte približno enako količino paradižnikove omake in mleka. Razmerje tekočine in leče je nekako 1:1, odvisno kako redko ali gosto jed želite. Vmes še vseeno lahko dodate tekočino, ne bo nič narobe. Ko mešanica začimb in tekočine zavre, dodajte lečo in kuhajte na zmernem ognju približno 20 minut. Preizkusite, če je potrebno še kakšna začimba in ugasnite. Ker obožujem kurkumo sem dodala še eno žličko več kot je na sliki, okus pa sem izboljšala še z malce currya in kumine. Jed lahko postrežete samo ali pa z rižem, lahko pa na primer tudi z bulgurjem in popraženo blitvo, kot lahko vidite na tej sliki.

It's time for another recipe post! :) This time I want to share my delicious lentil "curry" with you. Lentils are in my opinion super foods, they're so tasty and have lots of nutrients, protein and fibers.

Like usual I don't have the exact recipe, I'm so sorry but I just can't cook like that. I only follow the recipe if I'm baking. But if you still want to give it a go you'll need:
- lentils, soaked overnight,
- onion,
- garlic,
- milk (usually there's coconut milk in curry recipes but I didn't have the best experience with it so I rather use rice or oat milk),
- tomato sauce and
- spices (salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, ginger, cumin, turmeric and curry).

 First you'll need to sautee your onion and garlic. Then add the spices but be careful not to burn them, just lightly roast them and then add tomato sauce and milk. About the same amount of each. Ration between lentils and sauce is about 1:1, it depends on how thick you want your curry to be. You can always add more if you'd like. So, when the mixture of spices and liquid comes to a boil, add the lentils, lower the heat and cook for about 20 minutes. Taste it and see if you need to add some more spices. I love turmeric so I added one teaspoon more than it is on the picture and I also sprinkle some more curry and cumin. You can serve it just as it is or with rice. Or you can cook some bulgur and sautee some swisss chard, if you want it to look like this.


Bon appétit!

With love,
Jana xx

  3. Dear Jana, this post reminds me of my mum cooking lentils. The smell of garlic wafts through the house. She taught me to use two things that enhance the flavour of the lentils namely: curry leaves (easily get these in indian stores: these are particularly helpful if you want to prevent grey hair �� the aroma of these is incredible. I so love it) �� the other thing that ahe taught me to use in lentil curries was Asafoetida - a pungent spice that was the important part of the lentil curry because it helped digestion. Lentils are supposed to be heavy on the stomach and can cause a bit of an embarrassment in public ��. A pinch of this asafoetida while frying the onions helped ease the tummy.
    Lentils are a weekly routine in my house. Mum always told me to eat lentils if i wanted my hair to grow. ��
    glad to read this recipe of yours. ����
