Swanky Savoy Roll-ups

What you need: 

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion
1-2 cloves garlic
1 cup lentils
2 cups water
4 teaspoons curry powder
salt, to taste Couscous:
1 1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup couscous
1 cube or tablespoon of vegan beef bouillon 10 leaves Savoy cabbage

What you do: 

1. For lentils, saute onion in oil until cooked. Add garlic. Add lentils and water. Cook 20 minutes or longer, until tender.
2. In the meantime, boil water for couscous with bouillon cube and oil. Add couscous, cover, and set to low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
3. Steam Savoy cabbage leaves for 6-8 minutes, a bit longer if they are still coarse, but not too long! The beauty of Savoy roll-ups is that they keep that gorgeous spring green colour.
4. When lentils are cooked, add curry mix and salt. Cook a little longer to 'sauce' the lentils. Place a mound of couscous in the center of the cabbage leaf, cover it with a mound of lentils, and roll up the leaf. Enjoy!

Hi, sorry I haven't answered your question. Haven't been around. Ladyofhawk has it right. Curry mix refers just to your favourite blend of curry powder or spices. You can buy plain old 'curry powder' at the grocery store, or use a more elaborate one if you like.


Since no one has answered your question, yet, I will make a guess... Indian curry is a blend of spices, each family has its own favorite "mix", so I am guessing that curry mix is simply the curry powder you find at your grocery... it is already mixed and ready for use.  It will vary some by brand because they all use different combos.... hope that helps.... ;)


Sounds really delicius  :) But I have one question: What is curry mix? Is it the stuff you use in Indian cooking, or?
Thanks  :)
