SUMMER SPROUTED LENTIL CURRY SALAD

In Recipes, Salads by Grace Van Berkum5 Comments

A delicious & nutritious salad creation I made last week in Nicaragua: 

High in iron, high in protein, high in enzymes, high in fiber….light, refreshing, and satisfying. The curry flavour mixed with the apple is really yummy! Perfect for summer, perfect for high energy levels, and perfect for weight loss.  

Sprouting lentils will take the same time as sprouting mung beans.

To learn more about the benefits of sprouting and how to do it, check out my previous post Sprouting For Beginners.

SUMMER SPROUTED LENTIL CURRY SALAD:

Salad:

(Modify the proportions to your preference)

2 or more cups sprouted lentils

1-2 stalks chopped celery

A couple chopped radish

1 chopped red onion

1-2 grated carrots

Chopped onion

1-2 grated Red Delicious apples

Handful chopped parsley (optional)

Dressing: 

(Depends on how much you are making and your taste preference…..I usually do a 3:1 ratio olive oil to lemon juice)

Extra virgin olive oil

Fresh lemon OR lime juice

Fresh, chopped garlic

About 1-2 tsp curry powder (depends on how much you are making)

Sea salt to taste

Ready to eat right away, but I think it tastes best when you chill it for a few hours.

If you don’t have time to sprout, you can cook the lentils (about 20 min) OR you can use canned lentils, but make sure to rinse them very well to get the sodium and preservatives off of them.

Enjoy!

  1. Just tried a modified version with cumin instead of curry. Equally delicious…on a bed of mixed greens too!!! Thanks Grace!

  2. As soon as I saw this, I put some lentils in to soak! It looks delicious…I love curry! And it looks so summery & light. Thanks again Grace, for all the great recipes 🙂

      my pleasure! i forgot to mention that sprouting lentils takes about the same time as mung beans. also, if you don’t have time to sprout, you can use lentils from a bag or canned lentils if you are really strapped for time (just make sure to rinse them well first)
      om appetite!
