Curried Lentils

Jana here with a delicious way to cook lentils! We like to include lentils in our diet, because they are an inexpensive, healthy way to add fiber and protein!  I typically make these Curried Lentils as a side dish, along with a vegetable and chicken, but you could easily double the recipe and eat it as a soup as well. I was using green lentils for this recipe, but also buy red split lentils sometimes too. Either would work well with this.

Curried Lentils

1 cup dried lentils
2.5 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
1.5 tablespoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

1. Combine the dried lentils and chicken broth in a medium size pot. Bring to a boil, then cook on low heat for 20-30 minutes.

2. Stir in the coconut milk, and spices until well combined. Cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
