Ingredients

    2C red lentils
    28oz can diced tomatoes
    14oz can Lite Coconut Milk
    1 onion
    1 tablespoon mild curry powder
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    5 C water

    1/2 C plain, greek, yogurt (optional, for topping)
    Chopped cilantro (for topping)

    *** optional
    for additional spice, add
    1-2 serrano chilies, minced
    red pepper flakes
    cayenne

Tips

1C of these lentils, over 3/4C rice with 1T plain greek yogurt is an incredibly-filling 350 calories, with 15g of protein! Add a chopped, hard-boiled egg and 1T sliced almonds for 100 more calories and 8g more protein!


Directions

Mix all ingredients in a large pot. Simmer for about an hour, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Add more water if necessary to keep a thick/soupy consistency, like chili.

Top each bowl with a 1T dollop of plain greek yogurt, and a sprinkling of cilantro, if desired

Serving Size: Makes 8 serving, 1C each
