I was experimenting in the kitchen yesterday and tried this sweet potato hummus served with stewed lentils with sage. We absolutely loved it. So filling! The hummus could be served with nearly anything. I'd love to try with grilled veggies (eggplant, zucchini, etc!)

I recently learned that dried apricots are a really good source of a lot of vitamins and other nutrients, so I wanted to come up with a fun way to incorporate them into some of my favorite meals. Here’s my attempt at a curry with them, and if you want to see step-by-step photos with the recipe, then check it out here.

Ingredients for 3 servings:
1 eggplant $2.29
3 tbsp olive oil $0.36
½ onion $0.35
2 cloves garlic $0.24
1 tsp ground cumin $0.05
1 tsp ground coriander $0.05
½ tsp ground cinnamon $0.05
½ red bell pepper $0.69
1 cup diced tomatoes $0.26
½ cup lentils $0.86
2 cups water
2 tbsp dried apricots $0.36
Black pepper $0.01
Total cost: $5.58 / $1.86 per serving
Chop the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Dice the dried apricots.
Preheat the oven to 390°F. Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise and cut cross-hatches into the flesh. Sprinkle each side with 1 tbsp of olive oil and salt and rub in. Place the eggplant on a parchment-lined baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, or until the eggplant is easily pierced with a fork.
When fully roasted, remove from the oven, and allow it to cool. Use a spoon to scrape out the cooked middle, discarding the skin.
While the eggplant is roasting, heat the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil in a pot on medium-high heat. Sauté the onions until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, coriander, and cinnamon and sauté until fragrant, about a minute. Add the tomatoes, lentils, and water. Cook for 15-20, or until lentils are tender.
Add the bell pepper, apricots, salt, pepper, and roasted eggplant. Heat through until the bell peppers are soft but still crunchy. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, lemon slices, and vegan yogurt. Serve with rice or naan, if desired.
I'm a 6ft guy weighing 175lbs. I eat around 350-400 grams(dry basis) of red lentils everyday. Just tell me can i continue eating like this way??
Lentil, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Len-til: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of two steps down the palate to tap, at two, on the teeth. Len. Til. It is Len, plain Len. But in my arms it is always Lentil. Did it have a precursor? It did, indeed it did. In point of fact, there might have been no lentil at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial sprout. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lentil was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this lentil.
Hi! So I love lentil stew (I don't even know if this denomination exists or I just made that up lol) and I add many different veggies and ingredients but still can't find a recipe that makes it flavourful without relying on salt too much. The ingredientes I use:
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: please just vegetarian options! Thanks :)
So recently I've discovered that I have a love for lentils, but I've only made a lentil curry so far. What other tasty dishes can I make with lentils!?
