Ingredients

For the Curried Lentils:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut or avocado oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 1-inch piece ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Madras curry powder
  • 1 cup split red lentils rinsed and picked over
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Mint Cilantro Chutney:

  • 3/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup packed mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Salt to taste

For serving:

  • 4 cups cooked sprouted brown rice or any whole grain you have on hand
  • Mint and cilantro leaves lime wedges, or any other garnishes you like

Instructions

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5-7 minutes, until softened and just beginning to brown. Stir in the ginger, garlic, and curry powder; cook for about 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the lentils and stir to coat.
  2. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Partially cover the saucepan and reduce the heat to a slow simmer. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the lentils have fallen apart, then uncover the pan and cook for about 5 minutes more, until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. While the lentils are cooking, make the chutney. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth; taste and add more salt if needed.

  5. Divide the rice and lentils into four bowls. Drizzle the chutney over the top and add a squeeze of lime juice, additional herbs, and any other garnishes you like.
