SPICED STEWED LENTILS

Ingredients:

1 cup lentils
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 1/2 cup vegetable stock or water
4 scallions, thinly sliced, white and green parts divided
1 green jalapeno pepper, minced
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
1/4 cup Italian parsley leaves, chopped

 

Directions:

1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add onion and sauté 2 minutes. Add garlic and spices and sauté 1 minute. Add lentils and stir to coat. Add stock. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until the lentils are soft but chewy, about 25 minutes. Transfer lentils to a large bowl.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Add white part of scallions and peppers. Sauté briefly until peppers brighten in colour, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add to lentils.

3. Stir in molasses and sea salt. Taste to adjust seasoning. Before serving, add green scallions, cilantro and parsley and gently toss to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature. (The flavours will develop if refrigerated several hours or overnight.)
