Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 1 cup uncooked brown lentils
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium carrots, finely diced
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Lime wedges, for serving

Instructions

  1. Check the lentils for stones, shriveled lentils or any other debris.
  2. Transfer to a saucepan and rinse under cold water then drain.
  3. Add three cups of water to the saucepan and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for about 20 minutes or until the lentils are tender.
  5. Drain and set aside.
  6. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  7. Sauté the carrots and onion for 4-5 minutes before adding the garlic.
  8. Continue to sauté for another 2 minutes or so.
  9. Add the curry powder and continue to stir until fragrant. This wakes up the spices.
  10. Pour in the tomato sauce, add the lime zest and cooked lentils along with some salt and black pepper.
  11. Stir then let simmer for 4-5 minutes so everything heats through and the flavors meld.
  12. Serve with the lime wedges.

Enjoy!
