Note this is designed for red lentils. Cooking times would change if you tried others. No I haven't. From Vegetarian Journal. Note the Wasabi powder adds a kick if you haven't used it before.

This intrigued me with the ingredients and I have red lentils in the house so thought I'd give it a try for lunch. If I make it again I'll skip the oj and soy milk in favor of veggie broth and add a tsp or two of Ras El Hanot (of course that would make it a different recipe altogether). To me this has kind of an off/savory creamsicle kind of taste with veggies and cayenne heat. Well, you never know until you try something and I'm glad that I gave it a try.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In place of the OJ use another flavor, such as apple or raspberry. Use your favorite flavored vinegar in place of the rice vinegar.
  2. Combine lentils, water, carrots, orange juice concentrate, and dash of the cayenne or wasabi powder in a saucepan.
  3. Squeeze grated ginger over the lentils. Discard the pulp.
  4. Cook until lentils get soft. Stir to prevent burning.
  5. Add soymilk and cook. Lentils should be thick and mushy.
  6. Season to taste with salt and drizzle on vinegar.
