Lentils

LENTILS

Buy good quality – small black and small green – relatively expensive, but actually very cheap as a $3 container of dry lentils will make a large amount of cooked lentils.

In saucepan, cover 1 cup of Lentils with 1” water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes.

While simmering, add 1-2 teaspoons of grated fresh ginger and a couple finely diced Plum Tomatoes

In a pan sprayed with olive oil or canola oil, on low heat, sauté 1 finely chopped medium Onion and a ¼ teaspoon of CUMIN SEEDS.

When lentils have absorbed most of the water and are getting soft, add the onions/cumin to the saucepan and also add ¼ teaspoon of ground mustard seed and ¼ teaspoon of curry powder

Stir and serve.  If you have excess liquid, you may drain it off.

Optional:  add some brown rice  - would cook separately in water and add at the end of the preparation.  It will absorb any excess liquid also.
