Spicy Paprika Lentils

  • Author: acerockcola.com


  • 400g tin of cooked lentils, drained
  • 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 chopped ripe tomato
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 peeled carrot, sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 tbs sweet paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chili (or more if you like it HOT)
  • S+P
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
  • 1 tbs tomato puree
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbs cashew cream


  1. Add onions, garlic and celery to a fry pan and sautée in water until the onions are see through
  2. Then add the paprika and vegetable stock powder and stir for around 3 minutes. Careful: paprika burns easily.
  3. Add splashes of water
  4. Add chopped carrots, chopped tomato, tomato paste and water. Let it simmer 10 min until carrots soften
  5. Add drained lentils and S+P and simmer for another 10 minutes
  6. Add cashew cream and adjust the seasoning
  7. I ate this with only green vegetables. If you are not suffering from ‘carb phobia’ you can add brown rice or even better, some cooked quinoa for extra protein.
