I love lentils so much! Red Lentil Dahl is one of my favourite go to dishes in the winter, and for me, it’s as good as mashed potato with gravy. So when the dreaded flu invaded our house I was on the hunt for an easy dinner, that would be comforting and have a boost of vitamins to help fortify our bodies against infection. For a low calorie, vitamin rich meal, it doesn’t get much better than Winter Lentils.
Winter Lentils have all the spicy warmth of a regular lentil curry but include a few extra ingredients to help fight winter colds:
- Garlic helps fend off viruses and bacteria
- Coriander is said to help promote sweating and break fevers
- Turmeric is packed with antioxidants and is a natural anti-inflammatory
- Spinach and other dark leafy greens are a great source of Vitamin C
What’s not to love? You can add as many or as little vegetables as you like to this versatile dish. Winter Lentils are pretty much a no-fail recipe. I love eating mine with a dollop of greek yoghurt and a few papadums.
