Introduction

About this Recipe

By: Riri

The potassium, folate, and iron in lentils provide lots of benefits. Potassium counters the bad effects of salt and lowers blood pressure. Folate protects your heart and supports your body in forming red blood cells. Iron helps ward off fatigue.

Ingredients
  •  1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 or more garlic cloves, crushed
  • 200g/7oz orange lentils OR 2 tins cooked lentils (green
    or brown)
  • 1 medium-large potato, dice it small so it
    cooks quickly.
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp mixed dried herbs
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1250ml/2½ pints vegan stock

The fiber in lentils is hard to break down. That’s why it can cause gas and cramping if you overeat it. If this dish is new to you, I suggest that you start with one serving per day.
