Curry Lentil Soup

Curry Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a surprisingly light and tangy lentil soup. If you are used to thick and heavy lentil soups, this one will surprise you. It's very tasty and was a great complement to the pizza recipe I just put up. This is also adapted from a Greens restaurant recipe.

Gujarati Dal

Gujarati Dal by Mihir Shah

This is comfort food my mom has made for as long as I've been around. She's been able to hook my kids on it; Dal is a healthy way to get protein into their diet. I serve it with some rice and yogurt. It also holds its flavor really well as a leftover snack.

Amazing Red Lentil and Tomato Soup

Amazing Red Lentil and Tomato Soup by John Spottiswood

I never thought I would have a red lentil soup that could match the Turkish red lentil soup that I have been served in Turkish restaurants and that I've learned to make. So I had low expectations for this Indian spiced version. It completely destroyed my expectations and was absolutely delicious. It was great last night, and I had…

Channa Masala

Channa Masala by John Spottiswood

This is one of my favorite Indian vegetarian dishes. I always load up on a few helpings when I'm at the buffet! Chick-peas are great for you, and filling too. This fabulous recipe is adapted from a classic by Madhur Jaffrey. I made it a bit more healthy. Use more butter and less oil if you want a richer flavor and don't care…

Red Lentil & Carrot soup is truly a soup for all seasons

Red Lentil & Carrot soup is truly a soup for all seasons by Nick Roche

With the arrival of warmer weather, it's all too often that soup begins to take a back seat to its more fair weather friend, "la salade". Well, the time has come to break from traditional habits. Soup is perfectly comfortable as the days and nights warm up. In fact, if you carefully pick and choose the type of soup, it makes perfect…

Yellow Split Peas with Vegetables (Dal Takari)

Yellow Split Peas with Vegetables (Dal Takari) by John Spottiswood

Wow, this is such a wonderful dish and so easy to cook! The keys to this dish are the yellow lentils, fried potatoes, and cumin seed. You can change out the other vegetables (spinach is a nice addition as it adds to the creaminess of the dish). Make sure you fry the cumin seed and potatoes over sufficiently high heat that the cumin…

Masoor Dal –Red Lentil Stew

Masoor Dal –Red Lentil Stew by Meghna Patel

Dal in general is a true soul food for any Indian at heart. I relish any kind of dal with simple steamed rice. Arhar or Tool and Moong dals top the chart but I am in mood for something different today. Hummm….. I searched my pantry high and low and I found a jar of Masoor Dal/Red Lentil . Now Masoor Dal is not frequently made in…

Spicy Lentil & Bean Soup

Spicy Lentil & Bean Soup by The Kitchen Magpie - Karlynn Johnston

I have been looking for more ways to serve beans and lentils that aren’t boring, since my non-meat eating son needs protein in his meals. And the fact that they are incredibly healthy for us is a huge bonus as well. Soup is a great way to incorporate lentils and beans into your diet, especially since it is so satisfying in the…

Kongjaban (Korean Sweet Black Beans)

Kongjaban (Korean Sweet Black Beans) by jason kim

Today we made a healthy side dish to counter-balance all the meat we have been eating. It's called kongjaban (Korean sweet black beans), that has been pre-soaked for a lengthy time (to aid in digestion and reduce flatulence :) and cooked in some soy sauce. It's a sweet and nutty banchan side dish, and they are filled with a good dose…
