Lentil rice curry with fruit

Real friends are easy to recognize if you are vegan: They don't annoy you with discussions. Instead, they cook delicious food for you. Here's a recipe from the best ever omnivorous friends from Tübingen. Serves 2.

Preparation time: 2 hours soaking, then about 40 minutes cooking
Suggested music: Moby has a free EP for download (Be The One) :-)

  • 100 g rice
  • 100 g lentils
  • 1 onion
  • oil for sauteing
  • 2-3 cm fresh ginger
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2-3 teapoons turmeric
  • 2-3 teaspoons curry
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cilantro
  • lemon juice
  • fruit! The basic mix is 2 apples & 1 banana. 1 apple can be replaced by anything you like. In sommer, nectarines are really great. Mango works as well.

What to do:
  1. Soak the lentils and rice for 2 hours in 500 mL water.
  2. Dice the onions and saute for a few minutes. Add minced ginger and garlic. Add turmeric and curry and roast for a short time.
  3. Add the lentils and rice plus the soaking water. Let simmer until all the water has been absorbed (about 30 minutes). In the meantime, chop the fruit.
  4. Add cilantro. Add salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste.
  5. Add fruit. Let simmer for 3 more minutes before serving.
