I’ve been meaning to make dahl for a while now. If I remember correctly it’s one of the first pure vegan courses that I tasted (many many years ago), at a restaurant called Á næstu grösum, that still operates in Reykjavík (in case you visit Iceland one day). There are various versions of dahl recipes to be found on the internet, but I decided to use red lentils as a main ingredient and kind of mixed various recipes together. So here it goes:
1 tbs olive oil
300 g dried red lentils
1 red chili, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbs fresh ginger
1 tbs mustard seeds
1 tbs ground turmeric
1 tbs ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
handful of fresh coriander
500 ml vegetable stock
1 can (440 g) canned tomatoes, stewed
1 tbsp garam masala
Soak the lentils in water for 20 min. minimum.
Dice the onion and grate the garlic and ginger.
Finely chop the chili.
Heat oil in a heavy base saucepan and fry off the onion, ginger, chilli and garlic until translucent.
Add the mustard seeds and fry until they pop.
Add the cumin, chili and turmeric. Fry for one minute.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the canned tomato stew.
Drain the lentils and discard the soaking liquid.
Combine the lentils and 500 ml vegetable stock in the saucepan with the tomatoes.
Cook for 10 minutes uncovered stirring regularly.
Reduce the heat and cover the saucepan with a lid. Cook for a further 20 min., stirring regularly so the lentils don’t stick.
When the lentils are soft and ready for serving add the garam masala and check if the dish needs salt.
Cook a further minute or two.
Garnish with handful of fresh coriander. Ready!
I decided to serve the dahl with some spinach, avocado, cashews and brown rice.

Í dag eldaði ég quinoa í hádeginu. Bæði er ofur einfalt að matbúa quinoa og svo er það ákaflega trefjaríkt. Ekki slæmt!
Ég vil hummusinn minn kryddaðan og bragðmikinn. Þess vegna finnst mér oft venjulegur hummus ekki alveg nógu freystandi. Í dag prufaði ég að gera hummus úr hvítum baunum...
Það er eitthvað við haustin og hvernig líkaminn æpir á mat eins og rótagrænmeti, súpur, hnetur, fræ, olíur, o.s.frv. Þess vegna er svo tilvalið að gæða sér á graskeri. Grasker eru ekki ræktuð hér á landi, en nú til dags eru þau flutt inn í tengslum við hrekkjavökuhátíð...

Elsti sonur minn elskar matreiðsluþætti! Frá sex ára aldri hef ég stundum séð hann skipta um stöð, frá barnaefni yfir í matreiðsluþátt.
I’m always on the lookout for something to put on my toast. Ages ago, long before I became a vegetarian, I bought hamp seeds. I had totally forgotten about them inside the kitchen cupboard until I found the package yesterday. After a little google search I found out that I could use hamp seeds in just about everything. Which is a good thing because
Now I know I’m not inventing the wheel here, but as a vegetarian rookie it was only a matter of time before I tried this one! Like so many recipes there are thousand of various versions of blackbean-brownies to be found on the internet. I browsed through many of them and combined what I liked the most.
