Slightly curried meatless french lentils

I took a spin on french lentils and added some curry powder for taste. Sometimes I add sausage to this dish but not always. This is a great endo-friendly meal.

To make this dish all you need are (serves 4):

  • 2 cups uncooked green lentils
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • curry powder
  • salt and pepper

To start, make lentils as per package directions.

While lentils are cooking, take a sauce pan and cook onions until they sweat. Just before fully cooked, add the tomatoes and cook gently. After about 4-5 minutes, turn off heat and set aside until lentils are cooked. You want this part to be cooked before adding to the lentils so that they dont turn into boiled onions – yuck!

When the lentils are of desired consistency you can choose to either leave the amount of water in the pot, or drain some of it out. Add the tomato and onion mixture, and all the seasoning to taste.

Make sure not to overcook or squish the lentils.

Serve and enjoy. IMG_3941
