| December/January 1994





Serves 8

Need to warm up on a cold winter’s day? Try these lightly curried lentils.

• 1 pound dried lentils
• Pinch of salt
• 1/4 cup butter
• 2 onions, finely chopped
• 3 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
• 1/4 teaspoon each turmeric, cumin, and cayenne pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon coriander

1. Place the lentils in a medium saucepan. Add the salt and water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer about 30 minutes, or until the lentils are tender and the water has been absorbed. In a skillet, melt the butter and sauté the onions and tomatoes.

2. Add the spices and mix thoroughly. Stir the mixture into the drained lentils.
