The preparation of the lentils is the longest step: they need to sit for 1 hour after boiling. This is an EASY recipe! It freezes wonderfully and the taste improves over time.
2 medium onions chopped
8 cloves of garlic (or more) chopped
3 tbsp ginger root chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1 can (6oz) Tomato Paste
1 can (14.5oz) Diced Tomatoes
1 package (10oz) Frozen Spinach
5 cups of Lentils prepared (1 bag dry)
3 + Tbsp curry powder
1 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander seed
1-2 Bay leaves
2. Prep the other ingredients: chop the onions, garlic, ginger, mix the spices (curry, cumin, and coriander) together in a bowl.
3. In a LARGE pan add the oil and the chopped onions. Sauté over med (med-low) heat. After a few minutes add the garlic and ginger and continue to sauté. As the onions become iridescent add the mixed spices and stir. The mixture should be very fragrant. Immediately add the lentils. Stir.
4. Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes and 2 cups of water. Stir. Add the bay leaves. Let the mixture simmer (med heat) for 10-15 minutes. The sauce will start to thicken a little. Add the frozen spinach and cover. Let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes. Turn the frozen spinach over and let the mixture simmer for another 5 minutes. Now the spinach should be thawed. Stir the spinach evenly into the lentils. Let the dish simmer with the cover on or off or a combination. (The longer it simmers the better it tastes).
5. Take the pan off the heat and allow it to cool for a few minutes. Serve with rice.
