Easy Red Lentil Curry
This is what I make for comfort food after a long, busy week. Easy and quick, served over quinoa in the photo but can also be served alone.
1 large onion, chopped
8 cups water
3 cups red lentils, rinsed well
4 zucchini, diced small
1 10 ounce bag frozen spinach
1 Tbs good quality curry powder of your choice (I use Penzey's)
In a large pot steam fry onions in a little water till softened. Add water, lentils, zucchini, and curry powder. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer on low heat for 20 minutes or until lentils are done. Stir in spinach and let sit for about 5 minutes. Serve alone or over rice or quinoa.
