For the curry

  • Add the lentils to a bowl and cover with water. Soak for 30 minutes, then rinse and put aside.
  • Fry the onion in the rapeseed oil in a large saucepan for 8-10 minutes on a medium heat until soft. Add a little water to stop it from burning.

To make the broccoli rice

  • Fry the onion in rapeseed oil in a frying pan for 8-10 minutes on a medium heat until soft.
  • Add a little water to stop it from burning.
  • Chop up the head of broccoli roughly and add it to your food processor. Pulse until you get a fine grain.
  • Add the broccoli to the frying pan and fry for 5-6 minutes until cooked through then season with salt and the juice of 1/2 lemon.
  • Toast the cashews in a dry pan for 3–4 minutes on a medium heat until they get nice and toasted (be careful not to burn them).
