Ingredients
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 2 cups organic broth of choice
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil (or to preference)
  • 1 inch kombu, or teaspoon of sea veggie on hand (optional)
  • 2 green onions, or ⅛ cup onion variety such as leeks, red, white, shallot, etc
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric, cumin, or any other sharp herb of choice
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste.
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan bring rinsed lentils, broth, and kombu or sea veggies to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook lentils covered for 20 minutes. Strain lentils in a colander or mesh sieve and allow to cool for a few moments in the sink. In the meantime, process onions in food processor until fine. Add lentils, even if they look a little runny. Reattach lid to food processor and continue processing while streaming in the oil and spices. Add lemon, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Note: If using mashed lentils or beans as a side dish, add only one tablespoon of oil.
