What's for dinner

{sprouted curry lentils & green sauce}

6 cups of sprouted lentils {or 2 cups dry lentils}
1 chopped onion
4 minced garlic cloves
1 heaping Tablespoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 Cups water
coconut oil for skillet

heat about 2 T coconut oil is cast iron or stainless steel skillet. Add in onion, garlic, curry & cloves. Saute for 1 minute. Add in lentils & water. Bring to a simmer with lid on then lower heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes, until soft. {dry lentils will take longer}

now it's time to make the green sauce {grin}


{cilantro green sauce}

1 bunch cilantro
1 Anaheim or bell pepper
{depending on how spicy you want it}
1 Tablespoon fresh grated ginger
4 garlic cloves
1 lemon juiced
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1-2 teaspoons real salt

place all ingredients in a food processor {I use a stick mixer} and pulse until mixed and smooth consistency.

We eat this a few ways
over rice
just plain
or on a tortilla
it's all up to you!
Enjoy!
p.s. {we usually double the green sauce & use on Mexican, salad, ect.}
p.s.s. {I'll be talking about sprouting very soon}

  3. Hi Brittany! I see you mentioned stainless steel cookware in this post. I have a new set of hard anodized cookware and am concerned about the safety...I'd love to hear your opinion on the healthiest and safest cookware?

  8. Hi Brittany! I've been reading your blog for a long while, so I know you know food and nutrition. Can I ask you what your opinion is of the Paleo Diet? My husband and I read about it, are trying it and are really liking the results. Just wondering what someone like you, who reads and knows a lot, would think.

    Here's the intro we read, and the little video clip as well: http://nerdfitness.com/blog/2010/10/04/the-beginners-guide-to-the-paleo-diet/

    Hi Sonja! I am not familiar with the Paleo Diet, however, what I read seems to fall in line with what I've learned. Cutting out grains and dairy is very beneficial for a lot of people. It sounds very similar to a traditional real food style.

    Well, I wouldn't use them. I don't think it's a good idea... although I don't have scientific proof of this {grin}. If I understand correctly, they are aluminum, with a chemical reaction that causes them to harden and then coated in a polymer {which is usually a type of plastic} that should protect the aluminum from leaching onto your food. However I would guess that once they are older and or scratched that the aluminum would leach into your food.

    I think high quality stainless steel and cast iron are the best choices. :) Hope that helps!
