Wraps of red lentils

Wraps of red lentils

Why red lentils? Simply because they contain a lot of good things! Fibre, vegetable proteins, zinc, iron, phosphorus and flavonoids.

I added a seasonal vegetable: cabbage. Some people don’t like its taste, and thanks to the spices, you hardly notice it! It contains vitamin C and antioxidants.

Depending on the seasons, you can add what you want:
  •     zucchini (makes a little water during cooking),
  •     peas,
  •     of the carrot (be careful, however, it will be necessary to cut it finely and add cooking time),
  •     pepper
  •     …
This recipe is spicy, you can modify it according to your desires and tastes.

Preparation time: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 20-25 minutes | Ready in 30 minutes

Ingredients for 4-6 persons:
  •     130g coral lentils (rinsed)
  •     450 ml water
  •     1 can of tomato paste (140g)
  •     Seasonal vegetable: cabbage. I used half of it (200g), you can put the vegetables you want.
  •     1 large onion
  •     1 clove of garlic
  •     olive oil
  •     wraps (I found quinoa and chia wraps, it changes a bit!)
  •     1 tespoon of turmeric
  •     1 pinch of cayenne pepper
  •     1 teaspoon of tandoori
  •     2 drops of ginger essential oil (or fresh ginger if you have it)
  •     Optional: 200g smoked tofu. I added smoked almond and sesame tofu to the preparation.

Cooking method
Once all the ingredients are in the pot, simmer for 20-25 minutes.

1/ Put the olive oil and spices in a pot, then add the chopped onion and finely chopped garlic. Sauté the onion until soft.

2/ Add the tomato paste, water and lentils that you have rinsed beforehand. Mix well.

3/ Then add the finely chopped cabbage. Optional: also add smoked tofu pieces.
Simmer for 20-25 minutes with a lid, stirring occasionally to ensure that the cabbage cooks evenly. If you see that there is a little less cabbage cooking and almost no juice left, add a little water if necessary, but not too much! We don’t want a soup, the mixture must fit in the wrap!

The preparation is ready when the vegetable is cooked. All you have to do is taste it in a wrap!
