Curried Lentils With Spinach

"From Nava Atlas, "Vegetariana" Pretty tasty, very easy. Needs a little something. I thought it would be good with shrimp in it, Joe (DH) suggested some heat (hot bean paste?). Maybe cubes of butternut squash? If anyone comes up with something fabulous, please share!"

    This was worth making. It's more of a subtle flavored dish. I did add a cup of minced onion and sauted it with the garlic. I also doubled all the spices but the curry which I only added one more teaspoon to. Also, my tomatoes had basil in them. Thanks for the recipe! I'm sure I'll make this again sometime.

    It is missing something, but was a good solid recipe. Will make again and play with it. *Made it again with frozen spinach and added a chopped onion. Better, but still needs something with crunch and with more color.

    Hey Chef MB! I tried to respond to your z-mail but your settings won't allow me to!! Go ahead and use two cups of whole corn flakes. :oD

    This is quite good but I agree that it is missing something. So I added a little more curry, some harissa, salt and sugar. I also omitted the cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. I think it would also be good with onions and grilled halloumi cheese.

I'm a writer, chief cook and bottle washer, GS leader, hunter of bargains and all-around domestic goddess. I love trying new recipes, and my daughters refer to Alton Brown as "Mom's boyfriend." I read voraciously, to the detriment of the hypothetical cleanliness of my house.
