20 minutes // 350kcal

* IngrEdients *

  • 125g firm tofu (smoked or classic)
  • 30g red lentils
  • 1 scallion
  • 2tsp olive oil
  • curry powder
  • fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper

* ReCIPE *

  • Cut the scallion in slices and the tofu in small cubes.
  • Warm the oil in a pan and fry the scallion slices and tofu in there for a couple of minutes.

  • When there is no oil left in the pan, add the lentils and cover with water.
  • Add 1tsp curry powder, pepper and stir. Cover and let it cook for 15 minutes. (Add water if needed)



  • The lentils will break open and become yellow: it’s normal!
  • When it is cooked and there is almost no water left, salt to taste, and add parsley (as a decoration, or more if you like the contrast of its raw taste with the rest of the dish).
  • It’s ready! Enjoy!


Note: Parsley (especially fresh parsley) contains C vitamin, which helps with the assimilation of the iron contained in lentils!
