Red Lentil, Kohlrabi and Grain Curried Salad Serves:   4
(serving size: 1 cup)

  • Prep Time:   20 minutes
  • Cook Time:   25 minutes
  • Total Time:   45 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup white wine or apple cider vinegar
11/2 tablespoons sweet curry powder
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
12-16 ounces of red lentils
A bunch of kohlrabi, leaves sliced, bulbs peeled and cut into small dice
One cup of couscous, or amaranth, or quinoa, or brown rice.

Directions

Make the dressing: in a large bowl, whisk the curry powder into the vinegar, and then slowly add the oil, whisking all the way. Taste it, and season with salt and pepper.

Make the grains: follow whatever the instructions are for the grain you use, and add three tablespoons of the dressing to the cooking water.

While the grains are cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to the boil, and add the red lentils and the kohlrabi greens. Cook these for from 6-10 minutes, until the lentils are soft, but still have some bite to them. Drain the lentils and greens, rinse them with cold water, and then drain it again (spreading the stuff out on a baking sheet  will help. Don’t use paper towels).

When the grains are done, mix them  with the lentils, the kohlrabi leaves, and the diced kohlrabi bulbs. If you happen to have some leftover vegetables around (green beans, favas, peas, etc), add those too. Pour the dressing over everything, mix it together and taste. Correct the seasonings by adding more salt and pepper, or vinegar if you like. 

Room temperature or cold, the salad is great.
