As I mentioned in this post, I was sent some Clearspring Quick Cook Grains to try out. I cooked the Millet, Peas and Lentils pack which contains Millet, Green Split Peas and Red Split Lentils which took only 10 minutes.
These packs of quick cook grains are so handy to have in the pantry for when you want a nutritious meal in next to no time. Just add herbs or spices and vegetables to the cooked grains and dinner is on the table in around 20 minutes from whine to dine. I served ours with homemade Naan bread. This Dhal freezes well too so I have made an extra batch to stash in the freezer for after bubs is born.
Quick and Easy 5 Vegetable Dhal
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 leeks, finely sliced
2 peppers, diced
2 courgettes, diced
2 carrots, finely sliced or diced
2 sticks celery, finely sliced or diced
4 tsp curry powder
4 tsp turmeric
1 pack cooked Clearspring Quick Cook Millet, Peas and Lentils or 250g cooked lentils
Heat a little oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and vegetables then saute until vegetables have softened. Stir through the spices and cook until fragrant. Add in the cooked pulses and 500ml vegetable stock. Simmer until warmed through and Dhal thickens. Serve with Naan bread.
