Two recipes came together this week to make a delicious and filling lunch and dinner. Last week Girlichef linked up Lentils and Potatoes with Curry to Just Another Meatless Monday and it looked good. Another friend (in real life too!) Steph over at Up North Over Yonder and Out of My Mind made a vegan Dal dish so good she swore her kids shoveled it in. I don't care for lentils really and I don't know why, perhaps it's the unattractive brown color, I don't know. I kinda mashed the two recipes together and I may have to amend my thinking, these lentils were amazing. And my kids ate them by the bowl full.
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon cumin
dash of crushed red peppers-optional
2 teaspoons of curry powder-more or less to suit you
1 cup red lentils, washed
2 large potatoes
in a large sauce pan heat the oil over medium heat
add the onion and let it cook for about 5 minutes
add the spices and quickly toast
add the lentils stir them around a couple times
cover with water to about 1 inch above the lentils
put a lid on the pot and bring to a boil increasing heat if necessary
chop the potato in to bite sized pieces
add to the boiling water cover and reduce heat until it is just simmering
cook for about another 20 minutes or until the lentils are soft
check on your lentils, you may need to add more water as needed to keep it from cooking dry
I added about 4 more cups throughout cooking
So it's time to link up any great vegetarian post new and old! I would love some new fall recipe ideas but ANY will do. Remember this week I have the Thrifted Treasure Giveaway, sponsored by ME going on, every post linked up, new or old counts as an entry in the giveaway (leave a comment on the giveaway post itself as the entry) but you have to be a follower of my blog to enter at all!
Peace and Love-
