Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1lb Dry Lentils
    1lb Carrots (Chip Cut Are the Best Thickness)
    1-jar Indian Masala Sauce (10-12oz)
    Half a bag of Fresh Baby Spinach
    2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
    2 Tbsp Onion Pwder
    1 Tbsp Curry Powder
    1 Tbsp Cumin
    1 Tbsp Kosher Salt

Directions

Bring two quarts water to boil with carrots and lentils in it, reduce heat to simmer, add spices (reserve salt until done, will make lentils tough if added now), cook according to time on lentil bag or simmer until the lentils are about the consistency of good refried beans, some mush/some beans.

When the lentils have thickened, add the jar of masala and salt - or to taste. When you have the flavor as you prefer, remove from heat, stir in fresh baby spinach and immediately portion out so spinach doesn't cook to much, you want the nice different textures of the lentils, carrots and spinach to stand out.
