    1 pound brown lentils
    5 cloves garlic
    1 chopped onion
    1 chopped red bell pepper
    3 tomatoes
    2 carrots
    6 cups vegetable broth
    Spices: cumin, coriander, garham masala, chili powder, dash cinnamon, tumeric, mustard seed, paprika, salt, pepper


This was an experiment I tried one day when I was craving Indian dahl. I didn't add any oil and it was ok but traditionally I think ghee (clarified butter) is used. Mixing in a bit of goat cheese would probably be yummy but then not vegan.


(Add in hot sauce or chopped hot peppers as desired. I also added some chopped cabbage or spinach might be nice. This is definitely not authentically Indian dahl but warm and yummy.)

Saute onions and garlic first, or just throw it all in the slow cooker. I cooked it overnight on low in a 4 qt coker, then blended about half to make it creamy. It made quite a lot. Add salt to taste after cooking and serve over brown rice, quinoa or eat on its own.
