Gewurztraminer Lentils with Mustard & Thyme

Gewurztraminer Lentils with Mustard & Thyme

A shot of Laura's open kitchen shelving with a bottle of wine, a glass of wine, and a paper bag on the counter.

I can’t stop it with the soft, relaxing, and beige home cooking. And today we’re including white wine for additional excellent step. The simpleness of these gewurztraminer lentils and the reality that they stay with about 10 active ingredients … it’s truly doing it for me. I’m constantly lured to include more layers of flavour (ie more active ingredients), however the basic goodness of shallots, gewurztraminer, mustard, and thyme … it simply works.

This dish has tones of among my most popular dishes: velvety French lentils with mushrooms and kale. This one is much easier though.

The quantity of active ingredients is on the very little end with these gewurztraminer lentils. With that in mind, I ‘d advise utilizing truly terrific tasting white wine and homemade veggie stock if you can swing it! Although I evaluated a variation with the Better Than Bouillon paste and we still truly enjoyed it.

For an additional layer of convenience, I advise serving these saucy lentils with something similarly relaxing. Something like: mashed potatoes, mashed cauliflower, soft polenta, or over some warm and fluffy rice or millet. If you wish to be truly additional, you might make my harvest veggie mash with roasted garlic and fried dukkah.

In the pictures here, I chose a fast cauliflower mash– so yummy. I simply steamed some cauliflower florets up until soft and combined them in a food mill with roasted garlic, a couple of little bits of vegan butter, a splash of unsweetened almond milk, and great deals of salt and pepper. Practically as pleasing as mashed potatoes haha. If you want to see a more official dish for something like that on here, simply let me understand.

I understand that feelings are riding incredibly high for a great deal of my American fans today. I hope that you can take away some minutes on your own and take whenever that you require for rest or simply to be far from a screen. This year has actually been. a lot. There is convenience and strength to be discovered in nourishing ourselves, honing our cumulative tools, safeguarding our earth, and regularly appearing for each other in our neighborhoods. The work does not stop when today is over. Keep increasing.

  • Mixer

Active Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup raw cashews, soaked for a minimum of 2 hours and drained pipes

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 shallots, little dice
  • 1 tablespoon thyme leaves, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry gewurztraminer
  • 1 cup French lentils, chose over and rinsed
  • 2 cups veggie stock
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon rough mustard
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup flat leaf parsley leaves, sliced


  • In an upright mixer, integrate the drained pipes cashews, dietary yeast, and water. Mix up until totally smooth and velvety. Reserve.
  • Location a big pan or little soup pot over medium heat. When the pan is hot, include the oil and swirl it around. Include the shallots to the pan and stir. Stir and saut√© the shallots up until they are rather clear and soft, about 6-7 minutes. Include the thyme and garlic to the pot and continue to saut√© up until the garlic is rather aromatic, about 1 minute.
  • Put the white wine into the pot and stir. Bring it as much as a strong simmer and let the alcohol prepare off for a minute or two. Then, include the lentils to the pot and stir. Include the veggie stock to the pot and stir again.
  • Bring the gewurztraminer lentils as much as a boil and after that lower the head to a simmer. Put a cover on the pot and let the lentils prepare up until tender and the majority of the liquid is taken in, about 25 minutes. Sign in on the lentils and stir them up occasionally.
  • Once the lentils hurt and there’s simply adequate liquid to cover them, include the Dijon mustard and rough mustard and stir. Include the cashew cream that you made earlier to the pot and stir. Season the mix freely with salt and pepper.
  • Examine the gewurztraminer lentils for flavoring and change if required. Then, stir in the sliced parsley. Serve hot!


  • I advise serving these lentils with either mashed potatoes (or as a filling for a baked potato), mashed cauliflower, soft polenta, or a fluffy load of wild rice or millet. Great deals of alternatives!
  • Since the component list is rather very little here, I would truly advise homemade veggie stock and utilizing a gewurztraminer that you likewise delight in drinking.
  • If you have a nut allergic reaction, I would look for an unsweetened non-dairy creamer that’s either oat or soy-based. You’ll require 3/4 cup!
  • I wager you’re questioning: Do I need to utilize 2 kinds of mustard? The response is yes! You get little pops of flavour from the rough mustard and the Dijon brings a great deal of that strong mustard-y flavour.

      In the dish notes, I advise a soy or oat-based creamer/milk for those with a nut allergic reaction. I believe the flavour of coconut milk would not produce the very best flavour pairing here regrettably.
