Recipe: Squash, Spinach and Lentil Curry

For a variety of different reasons – health, environmental or even just emotional – more and more people are giving up eating meat, or at least limiting their intake. Personally I have been a vegetarian for over 15 years, which means in that time I have had to come up with many different ways to make meat-free dishes, and create my own recipes. When people first give up meat they can sometimes find it hard to be creative or have variety in their meals – which is hopefully where I (and this recipe) can help!

One cuisine that is super-vegetarian friendly is Indian – dhaals, ghobis, saag…. all of these dishes are vegetable based. So I’ve come up with a simple vegetarian curry recipe that is easy and inexpensive to make, and should easily last at least 3 days, so it’s the perfect dish to cook on a Sunday night to see you through midweek suppers and lunches.

 

So without further ado, here is my recipe for Squash, Spinach and Lentil Curry.

Recipe: Supergreen Soup – the ultimate healthy Winter Warmer!

There are fewer things more comforting on a cold night that a hearty bowl of warming soup. The great news about this simple yet satisfying dish is that it’s really easy to make, and that my particular version is absolutely packed with vitamins, nutrients and minerals. It really is one of the best ways to stay healthy and boost your immune system during the colder months. It also keeps really well for several days, or can be frozen so a batch of this made on a Sunday night makes a speedy weeknight supper, and the ingredients can be mixed and matched – so it’s handy if you need to use up leftover veg. I love to pack mine full of greens as they contain so many good things – minerals, vitamins, iron and anti-oxidants. If this doesn’t keep coughs, colds and flu at bay I don’t know what will!
