Vegan Quick Recipe: Red Lentil Dal

Red Lentil Dal

Red Lentil Dal

With three kids and three adults to organize life around and prepare meals for they have to be quick to prep if I want to eat.

I purchase all of my organic produce, etc. at Trader Joe’s, but anywhere you like to shop will do!

1. Dried red lentils (1/4 cup)
2. 1/2 cup water
3. 1 tablespoon (more or less for your taste) of Penzey’s Sweet Curry Powder
4.pinch of salt (to taste)

I combine the first 4 in a saucepan, cover and heat on high until boiling, then simmer. Within 7 -10 minutes the lentils are ready for part two, the water is almost completely absorbed.

5. one purple carrot sliced in rounds
6. one half of a red pepper diced
7. 1/4 cup water

I added the rest of the ingredients into the pan and cook until all liquid is absorbed and the lentils are really soft. Serve immediately, or refrigerate – you can even eat them cold.

Makes: 1 serving of lentils at approximately 130 calories.
