Lentils and Rice

Lentils and rice ayurvedic meal

Lentils and rice are a great protein combination

Lentils and rice provide a good complement of amino acids and thus protein. The organic French green lentils we provide are quicker to cook than other types of lentils  like green or brown lentils.

We use basmati rice as Ayurveda says it is more digestible. It is best to soak the rice and lentils for around half an hour to make them more digestible.

The six Ayurvedic tastes in this meal

In this dish, there are all six Ayurvedic tastes. Ghee and rice provide the sweet taste and the spices provide the bitter and pungent tastes. The lentils provide the astringent taste. A squeeze of lemon provides the sour taste.

It goes well with these vegetables

This is a great dish to showcase whatever vegetables are in season. For example, you can airfry some asparagus to go with it. Or airfry strips of squash or sweet potato. Or you can add vegetables to the lentils and rice as they cook. If you are in a hurry, simply cook some kale, collard greens or spinach to add with it. This only takes a couple of minutes to cook.
