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.
