Lentils can be such an amazingly delicious protein-packed meal if you know how to cook/flavor them! Don't be afraid to experiment with your favorite spices. And if you like to meal prep, this is the perfect dish!
What you need:
10 oz dried lentils (soaked 4hrs or overnight)
4 oz yellow onions
3 oz carrots
1 oz olive oil
2 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp dried ground ginger
14 ½ oz fresh tomatoes or 1 can of diced tomatoes (no salt added)
20 oz water
2 tsp vegetable stock paste or 1 cube crumbled (reduced sodium)
brown basmati rice (optional)
vegan naan bread (optional)
Try it yourself:
Cover lentils with water and soak for at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain lentils, discard soaking water and set aside. In my robot chef or in a food chopper, place onions, carrots, olive oil, curry powder and ground ginger, then chop together until fine. If not using my robot chef, transfer mixture to a large pot on the stove and sauté for 5min at approx. 250F. Add tomatoes, fresh water, stock paste, and lentils, then cook for approx. 45min at 212F, stirring occasionally. Enjoy as is or with optional brown basmati rice and vegan naan bread.
Tip: Many brands of naan bread are not vegan, always check ingredients before buying, or make it yourself with my robot chef!
