Recipe of the month

Started by CarolineH   on 01 August 2017 at 11:05

I have taken this months recipe from the book The 8 week Blood Sugar Diet Recipe Book by Dr. C Bailey. A book that I use a lot for ideas particularly for lunch times. This recipe is simple but very tasty and ofcourse healthy.


Lentil, Carrot and Avocado salad.

serves 2

you will need; 1 tblsp olive oil, 300grms of carrots cut into batons, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 100grms tinned puy lentils drained, 2 handfuls of lambs lettuce leaves or equiv., 1 avocado sliced, 2 tsps seame seeds, 1 tblsp raisins, juice 1/2 lemon.


1. preheat the oven 200'C gas6. Toss the carrots in the oil and sesame seeds and roast for 20mins.

2. leave to cool. Place the lettuce in a bowl with the lentils and avocado, Add the cooled carrots, sprinkle over the seasme seeds and raisins followed by a generous squeeze of lemon Juice and season.

To convert this salad into a more substantial meal you could add some nuts and/or a handful of feta cheese.
