Gör så här:

  1. Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package.

  2. Soak the lentils for 2 hours and cook them for 10 minutes or until they are soft but still ''al dente'' (chewing resistance).

  3. Then let it cool. This step can also be done the day before.

  4. Lightly toast the sunflower seeds in a pan, set aside, and let cool.

  5. Fry the red onion in thin slices or wedges, with a little oil so that it becomes lightly browned.

  6. Finely chop the apple and coarsely chop the parsley. Mix the apple pieces with the lemon so they don't turn brown.

  7. Mix lentils, quinoa, sunflower seeds, herb salt, pepper, olive oil, and curry.

  8. Finally, add the onion, celery, and apple. Mix around and serve with a little dill as decoration.
