Meatless Monday with Alkaline Vegan Curry Lentil Stew

Welcome to the Miratel blog and to our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment

Lentils are an excellent choice for vegans as they contain “very high levels of protein, which makes them a great protein source.” With this in mind, on the menu tonight is Alkaline Vegan Curry Lentil Stew from the Live Energized. This is the perfect dish as we transition into Spring – healthy, satisfying and delicious. Check out Live Energized for other healthy recipes and so much more.

  • 1 big carrot, finely grated
  • 1 red onion, finely cut
  • 1 leek, cut into fine rings
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely cut
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chilli paste or fresh chilli
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 250g lentils, red or yellow
  • 1.2 litres of water
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Himalayan Crystal Salt or Celtic Rock Sea Salt

Method

  1. Gently heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions and steam fry them whilst stirring for about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic, carrot and leek and steam fry for a further 2 minutes. Stir in the kurkuma, chilli paste, curry powder, cumin and ingwer. Add the water and stir all the ingredients well.
  2. Clean the lentils under running water and drain them well. Add them to the pot and let them boil up shortly. Reduce the heat, put the lid on and let the stew cook on a low temperature for about 35 minutes, until the vegetables have started to soften. Stir regularly.
  3. Let the stew cool down slightly and puree everything with an immersion blender. Gently heat the stew again and season to taste with pepper and salt.
