  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 200 g broccoli one medium head
  • 150 g dried red lentils
  • 650 ml vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • Black pepper
  • Salt


  • Heat the oil in a saucepan, and add the onion and garlic. Cook over a medium heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are fairly soft.
  • Meanwhile, add the broccoli to a food processor, and blitz until no large chunks remain.
  • When the onion is soft, add the processed broccoli and lentils to the pan, along with the stock and spices. Mix well, and bring to a simmer. Cook gently, stirring regularly, until the lentils are cooked and the mixture is at your desired consistency - around 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with rice or naan bread.
