Summer On Your Plate

Hike in the Gelpetal in Wuppertal and Lentil Curry

Hike in the Gelpetal in Wuppertal and Lentil Curry

Marten and I hiked near my home this time. We didn’t have to drive somewhere, but started at my door. This trail was very interesting, because we went across meadows, in very small paths in the woods and along a creek, what I liked very much.

Here are a few impressions from the hike:

We cooked lentil curry this time. For that I chose red lentils, because they cook fast in about 10 minutes. So they are perfect for cooking outside.


On the first couple of meters of our hike we found wild garlic. We picked some leaves and added them to the curry.



Since brown rice needs to cook too long for an outside cooking event, we had bulgur with the curry. I would prefer rice under other circumstances. This is why I mentioned this in the recipe below.


Enjoy your curry!

        Vielen Dank, liebe Rina! Ich habe mir die Tour nun abgespeichert, das wird wahrscheinlich die nächste Wanderung sein, die wir unternehmen. Ich habe meinen Liebsten auch glatt davon überzeugen können, dass draußen kochen echt klasse ist. D.h. wir werden dann auch mit Kochzeugs untervegs sein ;).
        Viele liebe Grüße, Veronika
