Number of Servings: 6


    1 cup Lentils (prefer yellow)
    1 large Onion
    2 tsp Ginger Root
    1 tsp turmeric
    1tsp ground coriander
    1 tbsp Cumin seed
    1 tbsp Cumin, ground
    1 tbsp Salt
    1 tsp Pepper, black
    2 cloves garlic
    1 Jalapeno Pepper
    1.5 large whole (3" dia) Red Ripe Tomatoes
    3 tbsp Cilantro, raw
    1 tbsp Canola Oil

    Optional- served with
    1/2 cup cabbage shredded
    .25cup romaine lettuce
    .25cup red leaf lettuce


Fry onion, ginger (finely grated), ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, 1 tsp salt & pepper each, in oil until onion soft. Add Lentils, jalapeno (minced), tomato (cubed), stems of cilantro (chopped finely) and garlic (minced). Cook until 1/4 moisture of tomato absorbed by lentils. Add water (about 2-4cups) at a moderate pace stir regularly- continue adding water once lentils absorb moisture*** I do this to maintain shape of the lentils- I like them whole not mushy***. Add remainder of salt, pepper or to taste as well as cumin seeds. Add remaining cilantro when lentils are cooked.

I like to pack this on long work days in a tupperware container with 1-2 cups mixed greens (lettuce/cabbage) or with 1cup cauliflower/ broccoli
