DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the lentils. Combine them in a saucepan with the apple juice, ginger and water.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes, until the lentils are tender.
  • Add a little water near the end of cooking time to prevent sticking.
  • While the lentils cook, sauté the onions, garlic and carrots in oil for about 5 minutes, until the onions begin to soften.
  • Add the bell peppers and zucchini and tomatoes, cover and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes, until just tender.
  • Stir in the soy sauce and vinegar.
  • When the lentils are ready, combine them with the vegetables. Serve on rice and top with chopped scallions.
