I was craving something warm and hearty after a double workout day and decided on spicy coconut lentils with a little sunshine. I had never tried cooking lentils in coconut milk before and to be honest, I had no idea how it would turn out. I ended up adding a little turmeric, chili powder, and salt to give it a little kick and man, it was good. But it still wasn’t perfect. It still needed a little something more – so decided on some broccoli, oyster mushrooms, and Falafel Sunshine Burger patty.
- 2 cups lentils, cooked
- 2 cups coconut milk
- 1 cup water
- 2 tbsp turmeric
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- salt, to taste
- one cup of broccoli
- one cup of oyster mushrooms
- 1 Falafel Sunshine Burger patty, warmed and crumbled
- Kohlrabi sprouts (or any others you have on hand), to taste
Combine lentils, coconut milk, water, turmeric, chili powder and salt in a medium sauce pan. Bring it to a boil. Turn down the heat to a simmer and add the broccoli and mushrooms. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until lentils and veggies are soft. Add in the Sunshine Burger patty and top with your favorite sprouts.
