Yummy Lentils!

I think people are turned off by lentils for two reasons:

1) They don't taste good.
2) They are hard to make.

Those are both false. Lentils are not only a great source of protein, but are also a quick and easy meal that does not include the exploitation of animals. Here's a quick lentil recipe that I enjoy whenever I need dinner in less than 30 minutes. (Which is usually every night).

Here it goes:

Yummy Curried Lentils


1 C red lentils
3 C water
1 tbs olive oil
4 cloves crushed garlic
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp corriander
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 c soymilk
1 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste


1 C whole wheat couscous
1 1/2 C water

For the lentils, combine the lentils, water, olive oil, garlic, cumin, garam masala, ginger, tumeric, corriander, and cayenne pepper in a pot and bring to a boil. Turn to medium heat and stir frequently, cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until soft and mushy. When done, add soymilk, lemon juice, and s&p. For the couscous, boil the water, add couscous, put on lid, and turn off heat. Allow the couscous to absorb the water with the lid on for about 5 minutes. To plate, scoop on some couscous and top with some of the yummy, spicy lentils. If you're short on these spices, use whatever you have or like, it really dosen't matter. Don't forget to buy your lentils in bulk and this meal will save you money too!!
