Nutritious, delicious and power packed with goodness! Here is a yummy vegetarian based curry that I love to make when I need healthy comfort food to feed my body. It’s loaded with goodness and packed with vegetables and anti-inflammatory spices that are slowly simmered until tender. I love to serve mine topped with fresh micro herbs or sprouts then serve with sides such as organic yoghurt or smashed avocado and lime. This is a perfect dish for meat-free Mondays or to enjoy over a lazy weekend.
What’s great about it:
Yellow split peas are very good source of cholesterol-lowering fibre that helps to lower cholesterol and stabilise blood sugar. They are also packed with protein, minerals and isoflavones, which are helpful in reducing the risk of certain diseases. Sweet potato is a good source of potassium, a mineral that helps to control blood pressure. Turmeric is a nutritional powerhouse, rich in manganese, zinc, B group vitamins and iron. Ginger has potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It helps to boost immune function and combat cellular damage.
