Fun facts

Health benefits of lentils:

* Our organs and muscles need a constant supply of protein for repair and growth of the body. Lentils, especially sprouted lentils, contain all the essential amino acids that are needed by our body for good muscle-building and smooth functioning of the body.

* Lentils, along with beans and peas, belong to the legume family. Dietary fiber filled food such as lentils help in controlling blood sugar levels. Dietary fiber also slows down the rate at which food is absorbed by the blood and thus maintains the sugar level constantly.

* Lentils, with their negligible amounts of fat, are an ideal source of protein without adding any extra fat to the body, thereby promoting a healthy heart.

Recipe for 4


Ingredients:

250 g of red lenses

4 large potatoes

2 tubers

1 jar of gifts with coconut milk

1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon of yeast

1 tablespoon paprika seasoning

1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon black salt (optional)

1 teaspoon lemon pepper

½ teaspoon salt


For decoration:

A little bit of dulse (algae)

Parsley leaves


Preparation:

Wash lentils and potatoes. Remove peel from potatoes and onions. Cut the potatoes and onions into small pieces. Take the pot. Put all ingredients except coconut milk in it. Add 1.2 liters of water. Place the pot on the stove. Boil the soup for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use the fork to check if the potatoes are almost soft. If the potatoes are almost soft, turn off the stove. Strain the soup liquid into a separate container. Place half of the soup in the food processor and puree. Then add the pureed creamy mass to the soup. Take the coconut milk and add to the pot. Add some liquid left over from the soup. If you want a creamier soup, add only half of the liquid left over. Then stir the soup and bring it back to the stove. Boil for another 5 minutes. Turn off the stove. Place the soup in a bowl to serve. Add dulse algae and some parsley leaves for decoration. Bon Appetit!
