Not quite a soup, not quite a dahl, not quite a stew… but damn scrumptious!
1 cup of each of the following
Scoop of coconut sugar
Splash of sweet chilli sauce
5 cans of water. (I just use the coconut milk tin to measure out)
Bring to boil
Cover, reduce and leave for an hour. (Overnight would be better but hunger called) Top up on spices etc as required.
I told you it was easy and super delicious.
Add more water and into the blender to turn it into a soup if you so wish.
I popped a scoop of spinach pesto from yesterday’s recipe on top along with a sprinkling of salted peanuts, chilli flakes and parsley.
Serve up with a nice chunk of bread and enjoy.
All the bbbb’s…..Beluga, blackberry and beetroot!
Beluga lentil cake with blackberry/beetroot tagliatelle, beet leaves and coconut sweet chilli sauce may sound super fancy and a tad complicated but I promise as with most of my dishes its quick and easy and pretty as a little vegan picture.
For the lentil cake:
Boil and drain beluga lentils and broccoli.
Blend with dillisk, salt, onion, pumpkin seeds mixed herbs and anything else that takes your fancy. I also added some ground flax seed and water to help it bind. Scoop into metal rings and onto a lined tray.
Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 min at 200c.
For the pasta:
Boil water, add a pinch of salt and drizzle of olive oil and pop in the blackberry and beetroot tagliatelle (15 min.) I normally try to make my own pasta but this was just too inviting at the market and was packaged up their in front of me. Scrumptious.
For the sauce:
Into a wok add a tin of coconut milk, grated ginger, squeeze of balsamic reduction, puréed garlic, generous glug of sweet chilli, agave syrup and a squeeze of lemon. I’m all about flavouring to your liking with these sort of sauces.
For the beet leaves:
Sauté in a little garlic and oil. Simple… They smell a little like rhubarb and are loaded with goodness. Great in salads too.
Time to eat! Yum
