hot and spicy
keith is a vegetarian version of a "meat and potatoes" kind of guy. he likes his food simple and familiar. so it was a happy surprise when he raved about the lentil dal that my daughter and son-in-law made us last week. we're experiencing a cold snap here in western newfoundland (as they are in most of canada this week) so it was a perfect meal to make a couple of nights ago. and it inspired my most recent skein of yarn...
saute a chopped onion, some garlic, a grated carrot and a spoonful of curry paste (i use mild patak curry) in lots of margerine
add a tin of diced tomatoes, 1/2 a veggie cube, 1/2 c. green lentils, 1/2 c. of red lentils and some water.
cook until the green lentils are soft. adjust seasoning to taste.
i served it with naam (spread with margerine and lightly salted and baked at 400 for about 10 minutes) and a salad. yum yum.
