Superfood Theme - Jacinta Main (3 of 3)This dish is from the Superfoods dinner, and contains the following superfood: lentils.

The inspiration for the lentil dish came from the lunchboxbunch website (see the Harvest skillet recipe).

I cooked the lentils in batches. The first batch had a lot of oil in the pan and these didn’t end up ‘popping’ but went a bit mushy. The rest of them I fried in a dry nonstick pan and they popped all over the place. Because I wanted this dish to go a bit further I added more vegetables then the recipe suggests. I used a grated onion, apple, zucchini, a finely chopped red capsicum and about a cup of grated sweet potato.

Superfood Theme - Jacinta Main (2 of 3)This dish is from the Superfoods dinner, and contains the following superfoods: sweet potato, ginger and tumeric.

To make the latkes, I used this recipe from EatingWell but with the following adjustments.

When making the latkes:

  • I tripled the recipe
  • I replaced the potato with sweet potato
  • I used a combination of fresh and ground turmeric
  • I used brown rice flour (from Coles) instead of chickpea flour
  • I forgot the green serrano chillies

When making the applesauce:

  • I made my own by cooking two chopped apples with a bit of water and then blended them
  • I used fresh turmeric

To make the salad, I used this recipe from taste.com.au and doubled it. The only change I made was to replace the pinenuts with walnuts.

On Monday 14th July, we had Superfoods. Jacinta hosted and, along with Laura, provided us with dishes that included ingredients known to be superfoods, whatever that really means. In any case, they were very tasty!
