I've got a new fast supper favorite - East Indian Spinach and Lentils. Thought I'd share, in case you are looking for something new. It's from Extending the Table by Joetta Handrich Schlabach - thanks so much Kathy for letting me borrow! I am loving it. Don't judge it by its appearance. When I set this on the table, Kellen announced he was not going to eat it. I thought we might have a fight, but he took his required bite. There was a surprised look on his face, "mmm, this is really good Mom!" He polished off his entire bowl!
Here is my slightly altered version:
In a large pan, heat oil and cook 1 large chopped onion. Add and cook for about 30 sec. 4 minced garlic cloves, 2 T chopped ginger root. Stir in 2 tsp whole cumin seed, 2 tsp curry powder, 1 tsp salt. Add 1.5 cups red lentils, 4 cups chicken broth (or use water as the original recipe called for), 2 large diced potatoes, and several large handfuls of spinach. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender.
