Curried Pineapple Lentils
From: CoFarb

Serve over rice or with another curry or...

  • veg. oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 T. chopped ginger root
  • 12 oz. split red (or other) lentils (the lentils turn yellow when cooked; yellow ones may turn beige!)
  • approx. 6 c. veggie stock (or water)
  • 4 tsp. curry powder
  • large can crushed pineapple, with juice (I used 20 oz. can because that's what I had!)
  • salt to taste
Heat the veg. oil in a pot. Add chopped onion; saute until soft but not brown, about 10 min.

Add the ginger; saute another couple of minutes. Add the curry powder and lentils, stirring well to mix. Add the pineapple and its juice. Add the stock (or water). Bring to boil; reduce heat; cover; simmer until most of the liquid is absorbed and the lentils are cooked to the nearly-mush stage (add more stock/water if needed). Add salt.

Serve over rice. For a whole meal, prepare a dry veg. curry (with potatoes, cauliflower and peas, for example) to accompany this dish.
