Well, if you know me, you also know that this is one of my favorites! Curried Lentils with Spinach!! This is a perfect meal! Low in fat, high in fiber, and delicious!
What you need:
3/4 cup Lentils, washed and drained
4 oz Fresh Spinach
4 Tbs. Greek Yogurt (optional)
1 Large Onion, chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
2 cups Vegetable Broth (low sodium) Trader Joe's has a good one!
1/4 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp Curry powder
1/2 tsp Chili powder (Optional)
*If you must use salt, add just a little bit of sea salt to taste.
What to do:
Heat the oil in a pan and sauté onions and garlic for 5 minutes over medium heat. Add cumin, curry powder, cinnamon and chili. Mix well.
Cook for another 5 minutes until onions are soft.
Add the lentils to the pan and mix well with the onion mixture. Pour the hot stock in the pan, bring to boil, and lower the heat. Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes until lentils are cooked.
Add the spinach to the pan, cover and cook for 3-4 minutes until spinach leaves are wilted.
Mix the spinach with lentil mixture.
Add the yogurt to the pan, season with salt, and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
Serve alone (my favorite way), or over rice .
