This Spicy Lentil Soup with Curry Pinwheel Rolls recipe not only satisfies your taste buds but also offers a number of health benefits. Let’s take a closer look at the key ingredients and their respective benefits:
Lentils are a type of legume that has high nutritional value. These tiny legumes are rich in fiber, protein, and essential minerals like iron and folic acid. Including lentils in your diet can help lower cholesterol, support gut health and promote heart health. The red lentils used in this recipe give the soup a creamy texture and contribute to its rich flavor.
Curry paste adds a touch of flavor to the soup, making it a delicious and filling meal. The main ingredient in curry paste is turmeric, which contains a potent compound called curcumin. Curcumin has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, making it beneficial for fighting inflammation, boosting immunity and promoting overall well-being.
Onions and carrots
Adding onions and carrots to this soup not only improves its taste but also provides several health benefits. Onions are rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and certain cancers. Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, a compound that is converted into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is important for maintaining healthy vision, boosting the immune system and promoting skin health.
Using hot vegetable broth as the base for this soup not only gives this soup an intense flavor but also adds to its nutritional value. Vegetable broth is low in calories and fat and at the same time rich in important vitamins and minerals. It moisturizes, aids digestion and helps maintain electrolyte balance in the body.
The bread mixture used in this recipe goes perfectly with the spicy lentil soup. It’s important to note that the ingredients and nutritional content of bread mixes can vary. However, most bread mixes contain whole grains, which are an excellent source of fiber, essential minerals and antioxidants. Whole grains have been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers.
