CURRIED ZUCCHINI & YELLOW LENTILS
Curried Zucchini & Yellow Lentils
I must say that it’s one of my favorite vegetarian dishes which brings back those childhood memories where you sit with your parents and share a warm delicious meal made with mother’s love while watching TV.
Here is the recipe to one of my fav vegetarian dishes!
Start to finish: 35 minutes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, thin sliced.
4 garlic cloves
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper 1 tsp
2 large zucchini - chopped into small pieces
1 Cup lentils - washed, cleaned
Heat the oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger, sea salt, cayenne pepper, turmeric, and cook, stirring often, until the onion just becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the lentils and water. Add enough water to cover the solids by 1 inch, about 3 cups or slightly more for soup style.
Raise the heat to higher and let it bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover , and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the zucchini (chopped) and little water and let is cook for about 5-7 minutes.
Now if the lentils have broken completely to create a thick soup base then turn off the heat.
Add cilantro and green chilies as garnishes.
