Lentil and Parsnip Curry (vegan) / Curry od leće i pastrnjaka (veganski)

It’s been a while since I whipped up a curry recipe and this one is as easy and as delicious as they get. Also, I figured that coconut flour, made from desiccated coconut in a food processor, is a cheap and excellent alternative to canned coconut cream. I’m all for making do with what you have at home, so this type of curry recipe is my absolute favorite.

METHOD:

Peel, wash and chop up the veggies. Separate the parsnip leaves from the root, chop them up and set aside for later. Rinse the lentils in a colander under running water. Dissolve coconut flour in veggie broth, so that no lumps remain.

Add coconut oil, onion, minced garlic and parsnips roots to a pot on high heat. Cook for a few minutes until the veggies start to caramelize. Add in lentils, tomato paste, curry powder, turmeric, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper. Pour coconut flour and veggie broth mixture over everything and bring to a rolling boil.

Once your curry is boiling, reduce heat and simmer with a lid cracked open for about 40 minutes. Stir occasionally and add a splash of water if needed. Once your curry is done, stir in reserved parsnip leaves and serve over a bed of cooked rice.

Prošlo je već dosta vremena od kada sam priredila neki curry, a ovaj u nastavku je idealan jer je jednostavan i ukusan. Također, ustanovila sam kako je kokosovo brašno, koje možete napraviti tako da u multipraktiku usitnite ribani kokos, odlična i jeftina alternativa konzerviranom kokosovom vrhnju. Pošto sam pobornik toga da se čovjek treba snaći sa onime što ima pri ruci, ovakav tip recepta je za mene savršen.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,25 kn po porciji / 21,01 kn za sve)

1 žlica kokosovog ulja (0,50 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

2 pastrnjaka (7,50 kn)

1 šalica crvene leće (5,00 kn)

1 žlica koncentrata od rajčice (1,00 kn)

2 žličice curry praha (1,00 kn)

1 žličica kurkume (0,50 kn)

½ žličice češnjaka u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

½ šalice kokosovog brašna (1,50 kn)

3 šalice povrtnog temeljca (1,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite, operite i nasjeckajte svo povrće. Odvojite lišće pastrnjaka od korijena, nasjeckajte ga i držite sa strane za kasnije. Leću isperite u cjediljci pod tekućom vodom. Kokosovo brašno otopite u povrtnom temeljcu tako da ne bude grudica.

Kokosovo ulje, luk, sjeckani češnjak i korijenje pastrnjaka stavite u lonac na jakoj vatri. Kuhajte par minuta da se povrće karamelizira, pa dodajte unutra leću, koncentrat rajčice, curry, kurkumu, češnjak u prahu, čili, sol i papar. Sve zalijte mješavinom kokosovog brašna i povrtnog temeljca i pustite da zavrije.

Kada sve zavrije, smanjite vatru i krčkajte sa odškrinutim poklopcem oko 40 minuta, uz povremeno miješanje. Po potrebi dodajte malo vode. Kada je curry gotov, umiješajte u njega sjeckano lišće pastrnjaka te sve poslužite preko kuhane riže.
