  1. Good concept.. I agree on the veg better than bouillon base… I would rinse the rice and lentils before cooking…and would add the spinach or kales later in the process to not overcook and kill the nutrients… to add another healthy touch I always tend to add turmeric wherever I can as it is also a good anti-inflammatory. Bon Appetit!

  2. You might want to rethink the coconut oil, apart from many health organisations recomending against it for health reasons, each coconut tree in commercial production requires 25 sq meters of jungle to cleared, usually by burning and creating air pollution, plus 100 liters of water/day, heaps of chemical fertiliser, just to produce enough nuts for about 3 or 4 liters of coconut oil.And did you know that coconut oil is also used for fuel and lubricants ? Apart from that, it looks quite tasty !

  3. I cook all of these ingredients separately, in side dishes and soups…never thought of cooking them together. What a great idea, especially for summer when it's hot and I don't want to fuss with cooking….a pot of this would go a long way . It is pronounced "keen-wah" and the Red variety is great for salads….Thumbs Up for the video!

  4. I tried this its great thanks Tony you right the coconut paste/oil adds a element that makes it good. Been trying to lose weight myself i do eat good just to much . Lol

  5. Looks delicious!! Next time leave out the beef bullion cubes and instead look for Better Than Bullion soup base (it's usually next to the bullion in the store, they have it at Harris Teeter) get the roast vegetables flavor…yummm!! Then it's fully vegan! Great video!

  6. I've been making a similar meal lately too! Mine is chickpeas, green lentils, cous cous and haricot beans. It tastes awesome and really fills me up (not to forget that it is incredibly healthy too!)
