I managed to do this before picking kids up
I love the colour :-)
The main reason for this post is that I wanted to share dinner with you, well not ACTUALLY share-share but show and share the recipe you understand.
I got a lovely dahl recipe off someones blog (sorry I have forgotten who's I don't mean to offend and it IS great).
So here is my version with added spinach...
200g lentils (I used 150g of red lentils & 50g of yellow lentils)
One onion, finely chopped
2-3 crushed garlic cloves (I used 3ish squirts of paste)
1 tsp each cumin and coriander
Chicken stock (about 750mls for me)
1 bag spinach (I added to the recipe)
1. Fry off the onions until soft. Add the garlic, cumin and coriander. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes
2. Add the lentils, and mix through thoroughly. Add enough stock to cover the lentils to around 2 inches
3. Cook for 20 minutes or so, until the lentils are soft
4. Stir through the spinach and let it wilt
What I noted:
I need to learn how to cook yellow lentils (they were still a little eeerrrmmmm "al dente" for me)
Personally I need more spices next time.
Over all it was easy to make and tasted very good and I will be making it again :-)
Hope everyone had a good weekend, mine was fab - busy yet satisfying.
