DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the lentils and soak them for 2 hours in tepid water; drain.
  • In a deep pot, add 8 cups of water to the lentils, bring to a boil, cover, and cook on low heat for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Rinse the lentils with cold water and drain. Make sure the lentils are cooked but firm, not mushy.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the lentils, apple, bell pepper, jalapeno, olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and parsley. Stir and set aside in the fridge.
  • Just before serving, heat the sesame oil on medium-high heat.
  • When hot, roast the ginger and coconut for a few minutes until golden and toasty.
  • Sprinkle this garnish over the lentils and serve immediately.
