Curry Vegetable Red Lentil Soup

A bowl of this spicy, healthy gluten-free soup made a delicious lunch! As soon as I tasted it, I wanted to post it for you. Let me tell you how I discovered this wonderful treat…

… A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law sent some to me for lunch. But my son, who delivered it, couldn’t remember all of the ingredients, only that it was gluten-free. I enjoyed it and I wanted to learn how to make it.

Of course, I could tell that it had curry seasoning in it and I could taste the smoothness of the coconut milk. The cabbage, cauliflower, carrots and onion were obvious (yum!). But, there was a unique texture and flavor in it that I just couldn’t quite place.

When I found out later that the base was sprouted red lentils, I realized that they added a creamy texture and flavor to the soup that went far beyond what the coconut milk provided.

The soup is healthy in so many ways. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be made mostly from whole foods, except for the curry powder, turmeric and coconut milk – and they’re not far from whole foods.

Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Rotini Salad with Cauliflower, Peppers & Tomato

I discovered a new brand of rotini with good flavor and lots of nutrition.

I was interested in this new product from Tolerant when I saw that it is made solely of lentils – Non-GMO Organic Red Lentils… Nothing else.

That makes it gluten-free and also free of the top eight allergens. This low-glycemic rotini is certified gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, vegan and kosher.

Since it is made from red lentils, it has a delicate pink tint that is lovely and appetizing whether in a salad with greens and dressing or in a skillet with peppers, onion and sauce.

Napa Cabbage Slaw with Red Wine Vinaigrette

A salad with napa cabbage has a more tender texture and a milder, sweeter flavor than most types of American cabbage. And, to make it even better, its vitamins and minerals make it a healthy addition to a gluten-free diet.
