Sprouted Lentil Curry & Toasted Crunchy Mix Topping

First Up:

You will need to sprout 1/2 cup of lentil seeds 2 days before making this recipe. I used a combination of our Brown Lentil & Green Blonde Lentil seeds for this recipe. Crunchy Mix can be purchased for a number of our fresh sprout stockist or sprout 1/4 cup of crunchy mix seeds 3-4 days before.   

 

Curry Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 brown onion, diced finely
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 4 tsp mild curry powder
  • 2 cups of broccoli and carrot diced
  • 1 400gm tin of tomatoes crushed
  • 1 400gm tin coconut milk
  • 150gm baby spinach
  • 1 small lemon

  • 20gm Butter
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed

  2. Once the pan is hot, sauté onions, garlic and ginger for five minutes. 
  3. Next add curry power, carrot and broccoli. Sauté veggies for two minutes.
