Scrumptious Lentil kohlrabi Salad with Roasted Sesame
Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Lentils
A great combo of flavors that come together into a wonderfully nutritious and scrumptious salad. Using lentils and kohlrabi was never this easy.
  • 1 Cup Red Lentils
  • 3 Cups Hot Boiling Water (boiled in the kettle)
  • 1 Kohlrabi - Peeled
  • 2 Medium Carrots - Peeled
  • 1 Bunch of Cilantro (about 10-15 sprigs)
  • ½ Lemon - Juiced
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Roasted Sesame (roast your sesame by placing in a pan over medium heat and stirring occasionally for about 3-4 minutes or until it is roasted)
  • Salt to taste
  1. Put the hot boiling water in a medium pot and add in the red lentils. Cook over medium heat and let it cook while boiling for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. You want the lentils to be cooked and soften but not turn into mashed lentils.
  2. Once the lentils are ready, pour them into a sieve to drain the water and place in the salad bowl.
  3. Coarsely grate the kohlrabi and carrots and add into the bowl.
  4. Chop the cilantro (sprigs and leaves altogether), add into the bowl and add in the lemon juice and olive oil.
  5. Add salt to taste and the roasted sesame seeds and toss everything together.
