Indian Cauliflower & Lentils

Introduction

Yummy vegetarian dinner! Serve over rice or barley. I like barley best - it's crisp/chewy and has less calories than rice! YES the calorie count is correct - add this to your weekly menu and have a dinner where you can get really full without blowing it! Yummy vegetarian dinner! Serve over rice or barley.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup red lentils, rinsed
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 teaspoons curry powder, preferably Madras
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon turmeric
    2 cups water
    1 14-oz. can diced tomatoes, NOT drained
    4 cups cauliflower florets
    1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, halved, seeded and minced finely
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon cumin seeds
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons peeled minced/grated fresh ginger
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Makes 6 - 1C servings.

Preparation

1. Combine lentils, onions, curry powder, salt, turmeric and water in a large saucepan over low heat; bring to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are soft and the sauce has thickened, about 45 minutes. Add tomatoes, cauliflower and jalapeno peppers and simmer, covered, until the cauliflower is tender, 8 to 10 minutes longer. Remove from heat.

2. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds and cook until they start to pop, about 30-45 seconds. Add garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until the garlic is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in cayenne and immediately add the oil-spice mixture to the cauliflower mixture. Stir in lemon juice and cilantro. Taste and adjust seasonings with additional salt and cayenne.
