I love the concept of a Buddha bowl of delicious good grub. There might be a few lentil recipes ahead as I’ve got a kilo bag to get through. Feel free to leave some lentil ideas.
I just made dal, or a mild version of it.
1 cup of red lentils – add to a small pan with water to cover about 2 inches deep, they absorb all the water. Bring to the boil and simmer, scooping off any scum.
1 chopped and fried onion, when it’s softened in some oil, add two cloves of crushed garlic, I chopped chilli, add the seeds if you want heat, I added a teaspoon of cumin powder too.
I chopped a courgettes, two cooked beetroot and a tomato, sprayed them fry lite and roasted them for fifteen minutes.
I also steamed some finely shredded spring green, after I cooked them, I tossed them in a splash of olive oil, lemon juice and black pepper.
I also cooked some brown rice.
There it is a bulging bowl of cheap and delicious healthy grub. Well under a pound a portion with plenty of protein in the lentils with a slight kick of spice.
Over to you, a kilo of lentils to use up and your ideas are welcome. Also, any ideas for hot Buddha bowls for the autumn? I know it’s still summer here but it’ll cool down soon enough.
