Creamy Coconut Lentil Curry

Creamy Coconut Lentil Curry

FoodMatters | June 12, 2018


Have a go at using lentils from dried, rather than tinned for this recipe. Brown lentils are a great choice for curries, stews and salads. They are one of the most common varieties of lentil, and probably the one that you’re most familiar with. They can range in color from khaki-brown to dark black, and generally have a mild, earthy flavor. They cook in about 20-30 minutes and hold their shape very well.


How To Prep Your Lentils

Lentils are super cheap and are also one of the most nutritious legumes.  They’re high in minerals and help to assimilate protein and iron absorption. However, they can be pretty bland and boring and can upset your tummy and cause flatulence if not prepared correctly. The most important tip for lentils is to soak them. The longer they are soaked, the easier they are to digest. We suggest 24-48 hours. We have a wide range of lentils and legumes in the TWC pantry which includes red lentils, mung dal, black beluga lentils and mung beans

Soak in a jar with room temperature, filtered water. Drain and rinse thoroughly before adding to recipes.



2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 clove of garlic, crushed
400 g (1 can) crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp ginger, chopped
1 tbsp ground turmeric
2 tsp sea salt
1 cup pre-soaked green laird  or french lentils, rinsed and drained
1 can coconut milk
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup chopped cilantro



  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large pot or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cumin and coriander and stir until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add the garlic to the pot and let it brown, about 2 minutes.

  2. Add the can of crushed tomatoes, ginger, turmeric, and sea salt to the pot and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes.

  3. Add the lentils, coconut milk and cherry tomatoes.

  4. Add 1-2 cups of water to the pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer for 35-40 minutes, or until the lentils are soft.

  5. If the curry starts to look dry, add an extra 1/2 – 1 cup of water.

  6. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the cilantro and serve with freshly cooked basmati rice.

Lisa’s Pasta Free Minestrone Soup

Lisa’s Pasta Free Minestrone Soup

Lisa Corduff | June 6, 2018


I’m not sure there’s a more homely smell than soup cooking on the stove. This is my definition of comfort food and it’s now the PERFECT time of year to enjoy this food.

I’ve added pearl barley to this soup, instead of the traditional pasta – which makes it wheat free – a great bonus when you are looking to cut down on wheat.

You can replace the sliced bacon with a bacon hock and remove it when cooking is over, but for ease of ingredients – I used actual bacon in the recipe below. A nitrate-free bacon from free range pigs. It is heavenly. You don’t need much for a lot of flavour.


3 slices of the best bacon you can find and afford(naturally smoked adds an AMAZING flavour to this soup)
1 sliced onion
2 garlic cloves chopped
3 carrots chopped
3 zucchinis chopped
3 potatoes chopped
300g green beans chopped
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 cup passata
1 litre chicken broth/stock
1.5 – 2 litres water
Dash of tamari
3 bay leaves
1 tsp heaped Italian herbs
1 cup pearl barley(or 1 cup gluten-free pasta spirals)



  1. Cook bacon, onion and garlic in 2 tbls olive oil over a medium heat for 3-5 minutes in a very large saucepan.
  2. Then add all other ingredients.
  3. Bring to boil them simmer for 1.5 hours
  4. Add 1 cup of pearl barley and continue cooking for half an hour until soft.
  5. Enjoy x

¾ cup desiccated coconut
6 tbsp tahini
4 tbsp rice malt syrup

4. Press mixture into a lined loaf pan, small square baking dish or individual muffin tins.

5. Place in the freezer to set for two hours or overnight, then cut into bars and enjoy.

Healthy and Hearty Shepherd’s Pie

FoodMatters | May 27, 2018


There’s nothing we enjoy more than getting into the Food Matters Kitchen and recreating old favourites. As requested by one of our Food Matters Team Members, we’ve taken the much loved Shepard’s Pie and done our own spin on it to create a vegan version.


Shepherd’s Pie Ingredients

800 g sweet potatoes
1 small onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 sticks of celery, diced
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp olive oil
½ a bunch of fresh thyme
350 g mushrooms, chopped
12 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

400 g presoaked lentils, drained and rinsed
400 g presoaked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Handful of fresh, flat-leaf parsley
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 lemon
30 g almonds, crushed

Shepherd’s Pie Method

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Peel and chop sweet potato into rough 2cm chunks and place into a large pan of cold, salted water over a medium heat. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender.

3. Drain and leave to steam dry, then return to the pan a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Mash until smooth, then set aside.

4. To a medium pan over medium heat, add diced onion, carrot, celery, 2 of the crushed garlic cloves and ground coriander with a good splash of oil.

5. Pick in the thyme leaves, then cook until softened.

6. Meanwhile, roughly chop the mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, then add to the pan along with the vinegar. Cook until soft.

7. Stir in the stock, lentils and chickpeas, then leave to cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened and reduced. Add parsley, salt and pepper to taste and stir through.

8. Transfer to a baking dish (roughly 25 cm x 30 cm).

9. Spread the sweet potato mash over the top, scuffing it up with the back of a spoon.

10. In a small bowl add the third crushed garlic clove, rosemary leaves and crushed almonds with a splash of olive oil. Crush and mix together then sprinkle over the mash.

11. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve with seasonal greens.

How to Make Iced Tea

How to Make Iced Tea

The Wholefood Collective | May 3, 2018


Too hot for hot tea? Still want the benefits of functional naturopathic tea without sweating it out? No sweat (see what I did there?).

Iced tea will be your friend.

Here’s how to make it, thanks to The Organic Merchant.


Instant Iced Tea:


  1. Add a litre of freshly boiled water to 1 to 2 heaped tablespoons of loose leaf tea.
  2. Let rest for around 5-30 minutes, depending on how full bodied you prefer the flavour.
  3. If you like a stronger taste, let the loose leafs infuse overnight, then strain.
  4. Note: Watch out with blends containing green or black tea, as these might release bitters when steeped for too long. Give it a taste to see how well developed the aroma is already.
  5. Allow to cool down naturally or enjoy directly served over ice cubes for instant iced tea.


Cold-brewed Iced Tea:


Cold brewed tea is our personal favourite type of iced tea, as we find the flavours come out more delicate.

  1. Add 2 to 3 heaped tablespoons of your favourite herbal infusion to a litre of room temperature water.
  2. Leave to infuse for 6 to 12 hours, then strain.


And that’s all there is to making homemade ice tea. After brewing the base you can now put all your creativity in your next pitcher. For parties, we suggest serving it with a clear spirit to make a refreshing summer cocktail.




– Can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.

– Our homemade iced teas are fantastic as a cocktail mixer or non-alcoholic mocktail base.

– You can speed up the cooling process by stirring in some ice cubes until melted or putting your homemade iced tea in your fridge or freezer for a while. But watch out to not store the hot beverage in there directly; it would just heat up your fridge. We recommend to let it reach room temperature before putting it in.

– Keep refrigerated and whenever you want a refreshment, serve in an iced tea jug and put some freshly cut fruit slices or a couple of mint leaves in to give it the final touch to your liking.

Jazz it up however you like to create your own version.


That’s basically all there is to know about how to make iced tea!
