To continue our quest to eat healthy, today I’m going to making a lentil and coconut curry stew that will not only warm your soul during these cold winter months, but it’s so tasty that it will be hard for you to consider it a “healthy” dish. I’m using one of THE ingredients of 2016 – Pulses.
» 2 cups Kabocha Squash, diced
» 1 tbsp Coconut oil
» 2 cloves Garlic
» 1 knob of Ginger, 2 inches
» 1 small Onion, chopped
» 1 1/2 tbsp Curry powder
» 2 tsp Brown Sugar
» 1/2 tsp Cumin
» 1/2 tsp Coriander
» 1 can of coconut Milk (13.5 oz)
» 1 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
» 1 cup dry Red Lentils
» 1 can Chickpeas, rinsed
» 1 cup Baby Spinach
» Salt and Pepper to taste
1. In a mortar and pestle add Garlic and Ginger and pound into a paste. Set aside.
2. In a heavy medium sized pot, melt Coconut Oil on medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add Ginger and Garlic paste and cook for another minute. Next add Curry powder, Brown Sugar, Cumin, and Coriander. Stir until combined.
3. Add Kabocha Squash, Coconut Milk, and Chicken Broth and simmer for 10 minutes. The Kabocha Squash should be tender. Nextadd dry Red Lentils and Chickpeas and simmer for another 15 minutes. Once Lentils have cooked, add a handful of Spinach and Salt and Pepper to taste.
Did you know that dry legumes like red lentils, chickpeas, black beans, are called “pulses” and are the next big superfood trend? Pulses are nutritional powerhouses, packed full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber. In fact they’re so good for you that it’s been proven to lower blood pressure, help with heart disease, diabetes, and even lower your cholesterol. They’re so sustainable that the United Nations has declared 2016 as the International Year of Pulses. They’re also really affordable and you can usually find them in the bulk bins of any Supermarket. I love that they’re so versatile and they go with every cuisine, like today where i’m making asian!
For 2016 my husband and I are going to incorporate more pulses into our diet. We’re taking the “pulses pledge.” So I challenge YOU to incorporate Pulses at least once a week into your diet and tell me how you feel. For me I feel a lot more energy and lighter and I don’t get that afternoon slump. Let’s try to be healthy together this year and for more healthy recipe ideas I have Homemade Kimchi, Zoodles, and Soba Stir Fry!
This stew is sooo good and so good for you! The creaminess of the squash and the texture of the garbanzo beans and lentils really makes this unique. And I love that the coconut aroma really comes through. This dish is also great because it’s vegan and vegetarian. That’s so good for days when you just need a meat detox.
Thank you so much for watching and I’ll see you guys next time. Bye!!
