⁣DAHL WITH WILD BLACK RICE⠀

Updated: Apr 16




♨You don’t have to make pastes, toast and grind seeds, or marinade for hours to create a delicious curry. In fact, quite the opposite.... I make many curries really speedily.⠀

🌶Curries are particularly great if you are transitioning to a more plant-based diet, as they are so easy and delicious to eat with beans or lentils as a great source of protein. ⠀

🙎🏽‍♀️If you are peri-menopausal or menopausal eating chickpeas are a great way to add phytoestrogens to your diet, an absolute must to balance hormones naturally. ⠀

📉Reducing inflammation is a key to reducing disease, so anywhere that you can add turmeric or ginger into your cooking is always a major bonus.⠀

💥If you are scared of curries or don’t know where to start a simple Dahl is the perfect place.⠀
