Longer standing readers will know that in my book you cannot go wrong with either butternut squash or lentils. Here is a bit of information about why;
Lentils: the high fibre content can help to lower cholesterol. They are also high in magnesium which is great for the heart. Additionally they are low in calories and fat.
1/2 Butternut Squash
2 Eating apples
3 tsp ginger paste
2 tsp curry powder
1/2 red onion
3 cloves garlic
1 litre vegetable stock
1tbsp olive oil
Heat the oil in a saucepan and mix the curry powder in.
Grate the apple and onion and stir in. Add the ginger paste and garlic and cook for 5 mins.
Grate the butternut squash into the pan and then add the lentils and vegetable stock.
Simmer for 20mins and then blend to consistency desired.
