Sort and rinse lentils. For every 2 cups (1 lb.) add 6 cups hot water. Add chopped onion, garlic, celery, carrots, diced potato, 1 T. curry, and 2 tsp. cumin. Bring to a boil, then siimmer gently until desired tenderness, about 45 min. total. Add salt to taste.
Use less water while cooking, adn serve over brown rice instead of making a soup.Lentils can also be used in salads. For those that don’t like curry, use other seasonings that you like. Beans are very versatile – be adventurous, experiment and enjoy!
