I apologise for my absence. I am back on my old website whilst some technicalities get fixed on my new one. I cant wait to share some of the recipes that I have been brewing up this April.
Has anyone else noticed the cooler evenings? Well I thought that I would share a fantastic winter warmer guaranteed to keep you toasty for the evenings as well as replenish and restock some good nutrients back into your system after a somewhat “boozy” Easter long weekend.
Winter Warming Lentil stew not only is cheap to make with a handful of ingredients from your kitchen cupboard, it is a one of my best mates Sonny and is her ‘go-to-emergency’ recipe. I had to give it a go and share it with you. It was absolutely delicious.
1 Cup Red Lentils, soaked for a couple of hours or overnight
2 x 400g Tinned Tomatoes
3 Garlic Cloves, crushed
2 Sml White Onions, diced
2 Thumbs Fresh Ginger, finely chopped
1 Cube Chicken Stock
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Smoked Paprika
Pinch Sea Salt & Ground Pepper
Optional Sprinkling of Parmesan for the topping.
1. Soak you lentil by covering them with water in a bowl for 1-2 hours or overnight if you chose. Once soaked, rinse in cold water and place to one side.
2. Grab yourself a large frying pan, add a large splash of olive oil. Add garlic, onions and ginger, fry until soft. Add cayenne pepper and smoked paprika. Fry for a couple more minutes to let all of the spices get aromatic.
3. Add lentils, tin tomatoes and stock cube. Bring to the boil and simmer fore 30 minutes.
4. Serve either by itself, or with a sprinkling of parmesan or on a buttery baked potato.
