EVERYDAY FOOD: CREAMY VEGAN LENTIL POT

Puuh, jag jonglerar fashionweek, tyskaplugg, socialt liv och jobb för fullt just nu. Är så tacksam över att vi gjorde en stor sats av denna gryta förra veckan, resterna står nämligen på spisen i detta nu och ger mig lite extra tid att avsluta jobbet istället för att laga mat. Minns att ”rester” var en av mina absoluta favoriträtter som barn, haha. Denna fantastiska gryta är perfekt att göra en stor sats av; den är mättande, sötstark, krämig, helt vegansk och blir bara godare om den får ”stå till sig” lite i kylen. Här kommer receptet:

I’m juggling fashion week, German studies, social life and work the best I can right now. I’m so grateful that we made a big batch of this pot last week, because the leftovers are simmering on the stove right now (it smells delicious!) and gives me some extra time to finish off my work instead of having to cook something else. When I was a kid, ”leftovers” was one of my favorite dishes, haha.
This amazing pot is perfect to make some extra of to keep for stressful days, it will make you full, it’s sweet and spicy, super creamy, completely vegan and only gets better after a few days in the refrigerator. Here’s the recipe:

1 dl lentils (we used green ones, but red works just as well)
1 pack of cherry tomatoes, sliced in halves
1 can of coconut milk
2 tbsp coconut oil
3 dl water
One mango, or 250 grams frozen mango
1 onion
3 garlic cloves
3 cm’s fresh ginger
1 chili
1/2 dl tomato puré
100 grams spinach leaves
2 tbsp turmeric
Salt and pepper

Chop onion, garlic and ginger and fry it in the coconut oil together with the turmeric. Add all the other ingredients besides the tomatoes, lentils and spinach, and mix everything with a hand mixer until the texture is smooth. Add the lentils and let it simmer until they’re nice and soft (add more water if you think the sauce gets too thick). Finish by adding the tomatoes and spinach. Done! Serve with a slice of nice bread, quinoa, salad or just as it is. Enjoy!

Hey please let me know if you try this recipe, and how you like it! It’s one of my favorite everyday dishes for sure!

….and the pretty plates and salt/pepper mills are from Kähler.

    I´m totally in love with lentil based recipes at the moment! My favourite is lentil soup with broccoli! Although I have never combined mangos and lentils, it sounds interesting and I will definitely give it a try!
