Lentil salad delicious vegetarian and vegan! Men’s or girls’ evening … Beer or Prosecco so it doesn’t matter.

1. Simply prepare Lentil Salad

I love my lentil salad with lots of vegetables. So that the salad looks great at the end and tastes delicious I prepare a part of the vegetables in the oven as oven vegetables. Preheat the oven at 220 °C hot air, wash the vegetables, prepare, cut into bite-sized pieces and place on a baking tray with baking paper, season with salt, pepper and thyme, drizzle with a little olive oil and put in the oven for about 30 minutes.

2. How to Cook Lentils with Flavour

The lentils must now be quickly put in the pot, finally they come softly cooked on the plate. Discovered a great ingredient for lentil salad in the supermarket, turmeric. If you find fresh turmeric on the market and have to buy it and cook with it, it is healthy and tasty a hammer. Alternatively you can use turmeric powder.

Als weitere Zutaten neben dem Kurkuma habe ich Knoblauch, Ingwer und Frühlingszwiebeln fein geschnitten.

Add these ingredients to the pan with the black lentils and fry for 5 minutes with a tablespoon of olive oil until translucent.

Important: Wash the lenses once on a sieve so that they are clean in the pot!

After sweating, deglaze the lentils with vegetable stock and cook covered with liquid for approx. 30 minutes until al dente/soft. Leave the lentils to cool lukewarm next to the stove, season with salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar sugar, lemon juice and olive oil to taste and then serve with the vegetables from the oven.

3. Which Lenses are best for Lentil Salad?

I prefer to use black lentils for the lentil salad. The caviar lens develops an excellent taste during cooking and offers a colourful picture on the plate in combination with vegetables. Red lenses are an alternative, the brown plate lenses I only use in an emergency.
