11 recipes with lentils

Lentils are a healthy food, similar to peas, chickpeas, soybeans and beans, with many nutritional properties and suitable for both adults and children.

It should be noted that there are several varieties of lentils, but three are the main ones, the others being variations: red lentils (which is actually orange), green lentils and brown lentils.

The red lentils boil the fastest (in about 20 minutes), followed by the green ones (around 30 minutes), and the brown lentils boil the hardest (40-50 minutes).

Drain the lentils in water soaked and together with all the above we pour it from a low height into the pan and cover with any kind of juice: the water soaked lentils, tomato juice, vegetable or meat soup or a combination of all this, including tap juice

Now having a kind of soup we can mix in the pan without the tomatoes becoming dusty and season with mint, curry, salt. Put it in the preheated oven and leave it for an hour (or until the juice drops significantly - we have a dish now and not a soup - then it's ready)

1 vf. teaspoon coriander

1 vf. of a teaspoon of nutmeg

2 vf. teaspoon of cinnamon

How to prepare raw lentil pate

We made it with half a dehydrated potato (we were left with another dish) and half a raw one, but you can also use a whole raw potato. Red lentils, sweet potatoes, lemon juice, olive oil are mixed with a blender, along with water. Add enough water to make the blender work properly, the amount of water varies depending on how watery the lentils and potatoes are. Once you have made the desired pasta, add the spices.

Be careful, this is not a very easy preparation to make so that it is edible.

Lemon cuts off the unpleasant taste of lentils, so you have to insist with lemon. If it does not taste sweet then you have not put enough potatoes, or it was too small. The above amounts are approximate, because not all lemons are the same and neither potatoes nor lentils taste the same. Add a little of the spices and adjust until you like.

How to cook lentils? How to cook dried green or orange lentils? A vegan vegetable recipe.

This lentil dish is really good! I make it with onions, garlic, carrots, peppers (optional) and tomato juice and I flavor it with cumin, in Transylvanian style. I also put a teaspoon of paprika (paprika) for extra color and flavors. Some people put bay leaves, it's not wrong either.

In Transylvania and Banat, lentil food is made for the New Year (New Year's Eve). It is a tradition taken from Catholics and evangelicals and it is said that lentils eaten on New Year's Eve bring abundance into the home. The Germans call it Linsen, the Italians lentils, the English lentils, the French lentils and the Hungarians lentils. The most famous is the green lentil of Puy (lentille vert du Puy) & # 8211 a region of France.

I've done one in the past lentil salad with raw green onions and pumpkin oil & # 8211 recipe here. It can be served both hot and cold as a stand-alone or as a garnish.

Most often I use dry green lentils but you can also choose the varieties of orange or black lentils (beluga lentils). To shorten the cooking time of this kind you can also use canned lentils from the market. They only contain lentils boiled in salted water. In the picture below you can see the lentil I used.

Be aware that lentils (unlike dried beans) boil very quickly and should not be soaked for hours in cold water. It is not even mandatory to boil it separately, especially if the recipe provides a certain amount of liquid (as in this case). For safety, you can still burn the lentils in salted water but do not boil them completely because they disintegrate.

From the quantities below we obtained approx. 4 servings of lentil food.

Lentil Ingredients:

  • 400 grams of lentils (I used green, organic lentils, but it doesn't matter which one is used)
  • 2 onions
  • 2 cloves garlic (large)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 celery stalk (celery stalk)
  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 tablespoons concentrated tomato broth
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3-4 bay leaves and pepper
  • chopped green parsley
  • optional: smoked or fresh sausages, about 2-3 servings
  • optional: 250 ml. of chicken soup

Lentil Food Preparation:

The lentils are washed well with cold water, drained and boiled in a pot of salted water to which was added 1 onion cut into quarters and 1 bay leaf. Foam and boil over medium heat until soft (may take 25 minutes to 40 minutes, depending on the range of lentils used). Drain the lentils in a strainer of water in which it boiled, remove the onion and bay leaf and rinse (in a strainer) with cold water.

While the lentils are boiling, clean, wash and chop the onion, carrot and celery, crush the 2 cloves of garlic and scald, peel and chop the tomato.

1. In a large, deep saucepan or skillet, heat the oil and fry the sausages until golden brown (picture 1) then set aside on a plate. I used my chicken sausages (click on the recipe link), if you want a fasting lentil dish, skip this and jump straight to step 2.

2. Add the onion, carrot and celery to the remaining fat in the pan, together with the crushed garlic (picture 2). Fry the vegetables, stirring often, until the onions are soft.

3. Add the lentils, mix and cook for 3-4 minutes (picture 3).

4. Add the sausages back to the pan (if used) and pour the chicken soup and enough hot water to cover the lentils for about 1-2 cm. If you are fasting, you can give up soup and simply use water. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, the remaining bay leaves and freshly ground pepper to taste (picture 4). Cover with a lid and simmer for 10 minutes over medium to low heat.

5. Finally, add the chopped tomato and broth (picture 5). Boil the food for another 2-3 minutes, cover and wait a few minutes for the liquid to be completely absorbed (the lentils will swell and the food will drop by itself).

Match the taste with salt and pepper, sprinkle with chopped green parsley and the food is ready.

Smoked lentil soup

A thick soup, with lots of meat, lots of vegetables, drizzled with plenty of cream. As a way of preparation, it brings a lot with the soup I told you about here. I gave up the cabbage juice (die) from the previous recipe, which means that you can embed it in all seasons, not only when you still have some supplies in the barrel of sauerkraut. I also replaced the beans with lentils. Also canned. But if you want, you can use dried lentils, which you can boil yourself. The result may be better (or not). From the quantities listed in the valley, about 8-10 healthy portions of top soup come out. They would have come out more if the pot had been more spacious.

What do you need?

  • 0.8 - 1 kg smoked pork chop (with bone)
  • ½ large celery (about 0.3 kg)
  • 4 suitable carrots (about 0.4 kg)
  • 2 parsley roots (about 0.2 kg)
  • 1 can of lentils (350 g)
  • 1 can of tomato paste 24% (75 g)
  • 0.5 L a little borscht
  • ½ kg fat cream (minimum 25% fat) for cooking
  • 1 teaspoon pepper mosaic berries
  • 2 - 3 bay leaves
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • ½ connection of green parsley
  • salt and freshly ground pepper - to taste.

How do you proceed?

  • Boil the ciolan in enough water to cover it, adding the peppercorns and bay leaves
  • After the first boil, discard the water in which the meat was boiled, add fresh water and continue boiling the meat over low heat for another 90 to 100 minutes, removing any foam that forms.
  • Meanwhile, peel the carrot, parsley and celery and cut them into cubes / slices about 1 cm
  • Add the chopped vegetables over the colander, fill with enough hot water to cover the meat and vegetables and continue cooking until the vegetables penetrate (about 20 minutes)
  • Drain the juice from the canned lentils, wash it with fresh water and add it to the soup pot.
  • Put the sprig of thyme in the pot and cook for another 10-15 minutes, after which you can (if you want) remove the thyme from the pot.
  • Add the tomato paste, dried tarragon and borscht, match the taste of salt and pepper, bring to a boil.
  • Add the cream, mix, bring to a boil and, if necessary, add more salt and / or pepper.

Take the pot off the heat, add the chopped green parsley and let it rest for 2-3 minutes. The pieces of meat should come off the bone on their own, possibly you can help them with a fork.

Have fun and see you healthy again!
