Warm Lentil and Beef Salad with Turmeric Quinoa

Today’s recipe is all about Healthy, Tasty, Quick, Simple, for busy people, for people with low energy, for those looking to increase their fibre intake or protein intake. It’s a recipe that takes very little time from prep to plate.

Having said all that, today’s recipe is also for those who just want some food on the table. When you’re back from work or if you have hungry kids staring at you this dish is what you should make especially if you know multitasking. I always start by cooking by grain first as it takes longer. Then I chop as I go. For instance, in this recipe, my onions would already be in the pan while I’m cutting the tomatoes. I make my ginger garlic paste and preserve it in the fridge for days, but if I didn’t have it, I would cook the vegetables and quickly crush the ginger garlic in the mortar and pestle. I think as I go, cut as I go and add spices as I go! That’s why I happen to have some very creative recipes. Thankfully I think before I publish the recipes here. Otherwise, there would be a whole lot of weird tasting recipes here too.

I give all credit to my children, though; they made me that confident in the kitchen. I had no choice but to learn to put the food on the table. Now I feed them even before they get hungry because I can’t bear dealing with hangry kids!
