 ROSEVALE RAINBOW LENTIL SALAD

Ingredients

Salad

1 cup Rosevale Lentils  

2 cups stock or broth (I used the Nutra Organics Broth) 

1 cup water

1 cup grated carrot (Approx 2 medium carrots)

1 cup grated beetroot (Approx 1 medium beetroot)

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup pine nuts 

2 Tbspn fresh mint

1 tspn coconut oil

Dressing

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup olive oil

1 Tbspn balsamic vinegar

1 Tbspn tamari

1 garlic clove, crushed

salt and pepper to taste 

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan place the lentils and 2 cups of stock or broth and 1 cup of water. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer cook for 15 min until tender. Cook so the lentils are still firm to touch, don't overcook as they will go mushy.
  2. While the lentils are cooking toast the pine nuts. Heat a small frying pan on a medium heat. Add the coconut oil and then the pine nuts cook for 2-3 minutes turning frequently until slightly golden. Remove and set aside on a paper towel while you prepare the rest of the salad.
  3. Once the lentils are cooked quickly rinse under cold water (you don't want to wash away the flavour from the stock) and drain then place in a salad bowl.
  4. Add the grated beetroot, carrot and chopped red onion to the salad bowl and toss.
  5. Top with the pine nuts and fresh mint, pour over the salad dressing, toss again. Add salt and pepper to taste.

SPROUTED ROSEVALE LENTIL BUDDA BOWLS 

 

  • 2 medium beets, peeled 
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled 
  • Half a red onion, peeled 
  • 25 green beans, topped and tailed 
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil 
  • ½ cup (115 grams) barley, rinsed (or sub another grain)
  • 2 cups (475 ml) water, divided 
  • 2 cups (180 grams) sprouted Rosevale Lentils 
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided 
  • 3 tablespoons tahini 
  • 1 ½ teaspoons red wine vinegar 
  • 1 clove of garlic 
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced 
  • 2 slices of lemon, for serving 
  • A few grinds of pepper, for serving 

 

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C 
  • Cut the beets, carrots and red onion into more or less equal-sized chunks. Slice the green beans in two. Drizzle the vegetables with 2 teaspoons of oil and toss. Arrange on a baking sheet. I like to put the beets in a separate dish just in case they need a couple more minutes to roast. Roast the vegetables for 30-40 minutes or until tender.
  • Meanwhile prepare the barley. Place the barley and 1 ½ cups (355 ml) of water in a small pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook for 30 minutes or until tender. If there is any water remaining in the pot simply drain it off. Allow the barley to cool slightly then mix it with the sprouted lentils and ½ teaspoon of salt.
  • Once the beets are roasted and cooled enough to touch, prepare the sauce. Combine 120 grams (4 oz) of the beets (about ½ a cup of beets) with the remaining ½ cup (120 ml) of water, ½ teaspoon of salt, the tahini, vinegar and garlic in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.
  • Make the bowls by dividing the barley-lentil mix between two bowls and topping with the roasted vegetables, sliced radishes, lemon slices and a few grinds of pepper. Serve the beet sauce on the side.

 

 

 

ROSEVALE LENTIL AND VEGETABLE LOAF 

200g Rosevale Lentils 

400ml vegetable broth

1 onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

1 spring onion, chopped

1/2 red capsicum, chopped 

1 egg, beaten 

Salt and pepper 

Set oven to 180C

Place the lentils and broth in a saucepan and gently simmer and stir occasionally until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the lentils are soft, take off the heat and allow to sit for a while in the pan to soak up as much of the broth as possible. 

Strain the lentils. 

Whilst the lentils are cooking fry the vegetables until they start to turn golden.

Place the lentils, cooked vegetables and egg in a bowl and mix. Season with herbs and salt and pepper.

Pour the mixture into a lined loaf tin and bake at 180C for 40-50 minutes, until golden brown, allow to stand for 5 minutes, then turn out of the pan. 

Serve sliced with salad or have on its own for a delicious snack.

ROSEVALE LENTIL, SHREDDED CHICKEN AND SPINACH SOUP 

* 1 tsp olive oil
* 1 white onion
* 2 cloves of garlic
* 2 sticks of celery
* 1 small bunch of fresh coriander
* 1 tsp turmeric
* 1 tsp ground cumin
* 80g spinach
* 2 medium (about 450g) sweet potatoes
* 6 large vine tomatoes, (about 300g), roughly chopped
* 320g red lentils
* 1 litre organic vegetable stock
* 4 tbsp natural yogurt * Crusty bread to serve. * shredded cooked chicken Method: Place a large pan on a medium heat, along with a little oil. Peel the onion and garlic, then roughly chop with the celery and add to the pan. Finely chop the coriander stalks and throw them in too, then cook for 8-10 minutes, or until soft and golden, then add the spices and keep cooking for a further couple of minutes, stirring until combined and smelling lovely.
Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and roughly chop them, as well as the tomatoes. Add both to the pan, along with the lentils and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil and then turn down to simmer for 25-30 mins, until the potatoes are soft and the soup has thickened (feel free to add more water if you feel it needs it). Stir through the spinach if using, then season with salt and pepper. Now you can blitz up the soup, keep it chunky, or take out a few ladlefuls and blitz that then add it back to the chunky mix to create a mix of textures.
Serve up into bowls with the cooked shredded chicken, a dollop of natural yoghurt, top with the picked coriander leaves and serve with some crusty bread
