Seasonal. Simple. Savoury.
Do you feel the spring? It gets warmer, but it is still to early for gardening. However, finally cabbage time is over and before the fresh salad is coming in, we like to prepare the spinach. Fresh and green, it was supposed to contain a lot of iron, but this is unfortunately not truth. But Lentils have a lot of iron. Let’s combine both and prepare a colourful tasty salad:
Portion: 2 person
Time: ~ 20 minutes
- 200 g fresh spinach
- 1 onion
- 100 g red lentils
- a piece of halloumi or tofu
For the flavour:
- olive oil
- pepper & salt
Step 1: Cook the Lentils
To work efficiently, start with cooking the lentils.
Step 2: Fry the Halloumi
While the lentils are cooking, heat a pan for the halloumi or tofu. Cut the halloumi into small pieces. Mixture in a small bowl some olive oil with mustard and honey. When you start frying the halloumi pieces, add the mixture. We suggest using mid heat, so the pieces get a nice colour and a tasty coating.
For a further special taste, cut the onion into rings and add them into the pan.
Step 3: Wash and clean the Spinach
While maybe the lentils still cooking and the halloumi fries with the onins at low/mid-heat, wash and clean the fresh spinach. Afterwards rupture or cut the leaves, that they are handy to eat.
Step 4: Mix the Salad
If everything is done, the lentils are soft and the halloumi and onions got a nice colour, put everything in a bowl with the spinach. Here again prepare another mixture with olive oil, mustard, salt, pepper and honey and pour it over the salad. Mix it!
Ready to enjoy! Eat it “warm” or “cold”, you will love it!
