Loss of taste and smell due to COVID19 is common. Good nutrition is one of the best ways you can support your body when recovering from viral infection. This is made so much easier when you maintain your appetite through the pleasure of eating. Meals strong in taste and beautifully decorated like this month’s recipe suggestion are perfect for this kind of appetite stimulation.
Ingredients (makes roughly 15 lentil patties)
- 200g of red lentils
- 1 red onion
- 4 cloves of garlic
- ½ bunch of fresh parsley
- 1 cm fresh ginger
- 3 teaspoons of curry spice
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon of caraway seeds
- 5 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
- 4 tablespoons of olive oil to brush on patties prior to baking
- Salt & pepper to taste
For the Tomato & Coriander Salad
- 5 large and ripe organic tomatoes
- 1 bunch of organic coriander
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 3 tablespoons of native Olive Oil
As a side:
- 200g of whole grain rice
Boil the lentils as indicated on the package. Meanwhile, mince garlic, onion, parsley and ginger, then set aside.
After the lentils are done, preheat the oven to 190 degree celsius and prepare a baking tray. Smash the lentils roughly with a fork and add garlic mix along with the soy sauce and spices. Mix all together and add breadcrumbs. Leave aside for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat water for the rice and wash and chop the tomatoes and the coriander. Squeeze lemon and prepare a dressing of lemon juice and olive oil.
Take the lentil dough and form into golf balls (should be easily doable with wet hands; if the dough is too sticky you can add some more breadcrumbs). Place them on the baking tray and flatten with your palm. Brush with some olive oil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes (turn after 15 minutes). Meanwhile boil the rice. Serve all together and decorate with fresh mango, spices and cream cheese/yoghurt! Enjoy!
