Vegetarian Lentil Soup Recipe For The DASH Diet

This lentil soup recipe is a very healthy soup. Great for Dash Dieters.

It was created by a Sri-Lankan chef from Toronto, Ravi Kanagarajah, who was famous for his soups and his big heart. He shared this recipe with the Toronto Star one day.

Ravi’s recipe was simple and straightforward, and the result was really tasty. One recipe produces 3 big or 4 average portions. I changed very little in it.

Curried Lentil and Apricot Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 onions, chopped
  • 1/8 cup (60 mL) finely chopped garlic
  • 1/8 cup (60 mL) finely chopped, peeled ginger
  • 1 tbsp (30 mL) mild curry powder
  • 1 plum tomato, cored, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (250 mL) diced dried apricots
  • 1 cup (500 mL) red lentils, rinsed
  • 4 cups (1 L) water
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • Salt + ground black pepper to taste
  • Garnish: Plain yogurt, Chopped cilantro

Directions:

  1. In large pot, heat oil over medium. Add onions. Cook, stirring, until lightly golden, 10 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes.
  3. Add curry powder; cook 1 minute.
  4. Add tomato, apricots, lentils and water.
  5. Raise heat to high. When mixture starts boiling, reduce to simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apricots are very soft, 30 minutes.
  6. Using handheld immersion blender or in food processor, purée soup. Return soup to pot over low heat. Stir in coconut milk. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve soup into warmed bowls. Garnish with yogurt and a sprinkle of cilantro.

Chef Ravi died last week, and I felt sorry that I never knew about his restaurants before it was too late. If you are in Toronto, visit RaviSoups where Ravi’s relatives continue running his business.

Oatmeal Smoothie For The DASH Diet Breakfast

Why breakfast smoothie? On workday, in the morning, we don’t always have time to make our breakfasts. Stopover at Tim Horton’s or Starbucks results in parting with some hard earned money; but, more importantly, it results in breaking the diet.

Because you either don’t know what’s inside that muffin, or don’t want to know ( for an obvious reason).

Oatmeal smoothie for the DASH diet breakfast

Breakfast smoothie is an emergency food for us. We blend it in the morning, or before a tough workout. The benefit of smoothie is two-fold:

  • Blended food gets digested really fast so you feel a surge of energy right away
  • You know what’s inside that smoothie and stick to the diet.

This breakfast smoothie can be used as a legitimate pre- or post-workout meal. All its ingredients are DASH-approved.

If you follow the flavor of DASH diet by Marla Heller, widely advertised by Dr. Oz, and you are on the first stage of the diet, this smoothie doesn’t fit its requirements. But if you are follow the original DASH diet ( or the second phase of the above version), this smoothie fits your diet.

Original smoothie calls for coconut water. Coconut water has its benefits – it contains electrolytes and trace elements that your body needs when working out. However, it is already naturally sweet, and some brands contain added sugar. If you use dairy instead, or almond milk, you will be more in line with the DASH diet.

Breakfast Oatmeal Smoothie For Two

(Inspired by Martha Stewart’s recipe that is no longer to be found online)

  • 1/2 cup ice plus 1 banana – or just 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries (any berries. I use the Costco mix)
  • 1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk (or other liquid, such as almond milk) – adjust to taste
  • 1 tsp honey or some stevia to sweeten it up

  1. Place ingredients in your blender, first frozen ones, then oats, then liquids.
  2. If using frozen banana, don;t forget to peel ( just kidding!) and slice it
  3. Blend until mixed well.

Smoothie can store for a day, so you can use it for your breakfast tomorrow.

So be careful – if you are on 1200 calorie DASH diet, 1/2 of this smoothie will provide all fruit for the day and 1/2 the sugar you can eat.

Vegetarian Lentil Soup Recipe For The DASH Diet

This lentil soup recipe is a high blood pressure sufferer’s dream. It contains THAT much of blood pressure lowering ingredients. Actually, it contains so much garlic that I would think it was created by an Ukrainian ( never saw anyone loving as much garlic as we do!) It has a healthy amount of ginger, very little oil, and overall is a very healthy soup.

Curried Lentil Soup (Vegetarian)

It was created by a Sri-Lankan chef from Toronto, Ravi Kanagarajah, who was famous for his soups and his big heart. He shared this recipe with the Toronto Star one day.

I got used to chefs’ recipes being a bit too elaborate, and sometimes looking better than they taste. Ravi’s recipe was simple and straightforward, and the result was really tasty. One recipe produces 3 big or 4 average portions. I changed very little in it.

Curried Lentil and Apricot Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 onions, chopped

  • 1 tbsp (30 mL) mild curry powder
  • 1 plum tomato, cored, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (250 mL) diced dried apricots
  • 1 cup (500 mL) red lentils, rinsed
  • 4 cups (1 L) water
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • Salt + ground black pepper to taste
  • Garnish: Plain yogurt, Chopped cilantro

Directions:

  1. In large pot, heat oil over medium. Add onions. Cook, stirring, until lightly golden, 10 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes.
