I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. I loved hearing how you all celebrate naturally yesterday and what you all were up to over the weekend.
I feel like Tuesdays are the day of the week that I finally get in the groove of the week. Mondays are usually just a blur. Anyone else feel that way?
Last Wednesday, I told you all about my Kushari that I made for dinner. I told you that it was the best lentil dish I have ever made.
I wasn’t joking… and now you can make it for yourself!
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 2 large red potatoes, chopped
- 6 mushrooms, chopped large (optional)
- 1 zucchini, chopped
- 1 can tomatoes
- 2 cups lentils
- 2 Tbsp tomato paste
- 10 cups water
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 veggie cube
- salt and pepper to taste- I did 3/4 tsp of each
The how to:
In a large stockpot, sauté the onion, carrots, and red potatoes with 1 Tbsp of olive oil until tender.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.
Allow to cook for 30-40 minutes or until lentils are tender.
You may add more water as you desire. I like mine a bit thicker.
Serve over rice and top with tahini and cilantro.
The tahini is what put this over the top good!
What’s your favorite way to make lentils?
