Ingredients

    1 cup red lentils (soaked for about four hours)
    3 cups of red rooibos tea (yep, tea! we had leftovers and I thought I’d be creative)
    2 apples, diced
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    1 tsp clove
    1 tsp turmeric (optional, but highly recommended)
    Maple syrup
    Vanilla-flavored coconut milk beverage (not canned)

Directions

Bring the lentils and the tea to a low boil and then reduce heat to low to medium.

After about ten minutes, add in diced apple and spices. Stir and then cook for 25-30 minutes, until the lentils are mushy.

Serve in small bowls, and drizzle of maple syrup and a generous splash of coconut milk

    I just made this. I used Celestial Seasonings Cinnamon apple spice tea. The flavor of the tea tricks my mind into thinking the dish is sweeter. I reduced the cinnamon to 1 tsp & the cloves to 1/2 tsp. I think it's sweet enough w/the apples & didn't use the syrup, 1% milk, & for me,this is a dessert - 4/16/13

    The proportions of spices in this are way off for this recipe. Way too much clove (Made my tongue numb) Too much cinnamon. Next time I make it I will cut way back! - 4/8/13

    I liked this recipe. At first, I had my dobuts. It turned out very good. A great way to use extra lentils. I used Splenda and Almond milk in mine. - 3/26/13

    What a great breakfast! I am going to experiment w/using agave syrup vs. maple for a bit less sugar for me. Delish! Great hot breakfast. - 3/1/13
