DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse lentils in strainer and sort through, removing debris.
  • Heat 1 TBS broth in medium soup pot. Saute onion in broth over medium heat for 5 minutes stirring frequently, until translucent.
  • Add garlic, carrots, celery, and cabbage. Continue to sauté for another couple of minutes.
  • Add curry powder and mix to bring out its flavour.
  • Add rinsed and drained lentils, broth and tomatoes.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer uncovered until lentils and vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
  • Add cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve over rice / toast / etc.
  • Notes:
  • I rarely have fresh cilantro so substitute 1-2TBS dried coriander. Usually end up forgetting it altogether though.
  • I play fast and loose with the quantities - very forgiving recipe.
  • Servings are a guess, I tend to make lots and use up all the vegies I can find.
