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.

    Easy and delicious! I have never used garam masala and I like a little extra spice, so I used 2 tsp. hot curry, 1tsp. Regular curry and 1 tsp. cumin. I also added some tomato sauce as there was not much liquid left. Very versatile recipe!

    This is my new favorite comfort food - and healthy, too. I used 2 cups of green lentils to make it thicker. I also added 1 teaspoon garam masala. Out of necessity, I added 4 cups water with 2 chicken bouillon cubes instead of stock. (It did not need further salt additions.) I buy the big packages (3 lbs.) of shredded cabbage/cole slaw mix at Sam's Club and try to use the whole bag within a week to eat healthier, so I used that in place of the cabbage. It was perfect. Thank you Andrea-Oz.
