I have become extremely more conscious regarding the amount of meat I eat and the effects on my health. Now don’t think for a second I’m turning into a vegan or vegetarian, the truth is I love fish and meat too much to contemplate this idea. However, it is inportant to have one day a week free of meat.
While eating too much meat can be dangerous, meat is a good source of complete proteins. Your body needs these proteins to maintain cellular tissue, so it’s a good idea to keep meat in your diet.
My partner who swears by eating meat for lunch and dinner was even convinced by this meat free recipe!
🔆Cheats black dhal🔆
- First cut up a califlower, throw on a baking tray (don’t forget the leaves) and toss in 1 tsp of turmeric, 1 tsp of cumin seeds and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook in the oven at 200g untill chargrilled.
- Heat 1tsp of cumin seeds and 1tsp of turmeric in olive oil untill the seeds pop. Add one chopped onion, coriander seasoning (fresh is better but I forgot mine!) add one can of full fat coconut milk and 2 x 250g of ready cooked lentils. Bring to the boil.
- Juice one lime in the dish and serve one wedge of a lime on the side.
- Place lentils in a bowl with the cauliflower on top- volla!
This took less then 20 minutes and is full of nutrients. Go on- give it a go!
P.s For those who are wondering what I had for lunch- a salad made from courgette noddles, prawns, pak choi, spring onions, chilli, coriander, cashews and soy/lime dressing. Another winner if you want to stay full and meat free!
My mum is visiting this weekend from France so you’ll have lots of posts next week about restaurants we have visited in London.
Have a lovely sunny weekend ☀️🌻
