Top recipe using lentils:
Green lentils keep their shape and texture after cooking and are often served with fish or roasted vegetables. Red and yellow lentils dissolve into a rich purée, and are delicious mixed into stews, curries, soups or veggie burgers.
Cooked lentils are also delectable in a cold salad when tossed together with chopped sweet peppers, herbs and spices. Lentils are also fabulous with buckwheat soba noodles, small broccoli florets and leeks, dressed with a mix of olive oil, garlic and ginger. Moroccan lentil soup is another lentil classic! Prepare your lentils, add diced vegetables and season with soy sauce, coriander, cumin, turmeric and cayenne…delish!
Lentils can easily be sourced both in modern stores (Woolworths, Pick n Pay, Food Lovers Market) and traditional trade markets (Taxi ranks /street vendors). And can be bought in both tinned or dry formats.
