Legumes and pulses are a great source of protein and they are low in fat.  They’re full of fibre and have a low Glycaemic Index (GI) which means they can help you feel full for longer. Beans and lentils are also a useful source of iron for vegetarians.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1/2 large onion, diced

  • 2 tomatoes deseeded and chopped , or you can use canned tomato
  • Pinch chilli, to taste
  • 1/2 cup red lentils rinsed well
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 carrot cut into chunks
  • 1 large potato, cut into chunks
  • 1 tsp. ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp. garam masala
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp. crushed ginger
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • Squeeze Lemon

Method

  1. Heat olive oil in a pan over low-med heat.  Add mustard seeds and onion and cook until onions softened, around 5 mins then add the garlic and ginger.  Now add spices, turmeric, garam masala, and cook for 30 secs.
