Even the cats. Which I think isn’t normal.
Normally, I just cook them up with curry powder, or cumin and garlic, maybe some diced tomatoes if I’m feelin’ sassy.
But this weekend I made some that weren’t Indian-tastic. And they blew my mind.
They were so good I made them again for breakfast yesterday.
Totally normal right?
- 1 medium red potato
- 1/3 c lentils
- ~1/4 c died onion
- 1 T minced garlic (or 1 clove garlic, minced)
- 2 T sour cream (I use light)
- 1 t butter
- 2 c chopped spinach
- salt and pepper to taste
Add the potatoes, onion and garlic to a pan with your lentils. Add water, and let simmer.
I have two types of lentils mixed together in my lentil jar. Poor choice-one takes WAY longer to cook. Life lessons. You just let it all cook, covered, on medium until the lentils are soft and delicious, adding water if needed-there should be enough liquid in your pan that the lentils are thoroughly covered.
When they’re mostly done you add in sour cream and butter
And if you’re me and get rather anemic every month, it’s got about a third of your daily value of iron! Win.
