So you know I love basically anything peanuty right? Except for peanut butter on toast. Because peanuts do not belong on bread! I’m weird, I know.
We realised recently that lentils were escaping our diet, in the rush from here there and everywhere. So I decided to branch out in lentil land and try some new things… this is a sort of satay/curry/dahl mix. It’s great…Actually I think next time I would keep the satay dahl as one dish and stir fry some veg on the side as a second dish. But husband-of-mine liked it just like this and I have to say, it was very tasty 🙂 I just prefer crunchy vegetables! But the satay dahl is a grand idea 🙂
1 cup red lentils, rinsed, picked, and boiled according to instructions
1 cup chopped veg as you wish – I used zucchini, snow peas, capsicum and broccoli.
1/4 cup 100% peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut cream
1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons tamari
2 garlic cloves
1 chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
pinch of cumin
pinch of tumeric
Juice of 1 lime (and zest of 1/2 lime if you enjoy)
Blend the sauce ingredients up in a mini blender.
Lightly stir fry the vegetables, add the sauce and lentils and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Serve with rice 🙂
EASY, fast and tasty!
