Why Choose Organic Red Lentils?

Before we dive into the recipe, let's take a moment to appreciate the benefits of using organic red lentils. These tiny legumes are not only a versatile pantry staple but also a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with plant-based protein, fiber, iron, and folate, organic red lentils provide a satisfying and nourishing base for a variety of dishes. Choosing organic ensures that you're getting a product that's free from synthetic pesticides, GMOs, and harmful chemicals, while also supporting sustainable and environmentally-friendly farming practices.

Ingredients for Organic Red Lentil Curry:

  • 1 cup organic red lentils, rinsed and drained

  • 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated

  • 1 tablespoon curry powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)

  • 1 can (14 ounces) organic diced tomatoes

  • 1 can (14 ounces) organic coconut milk

  • 2 cups organic vegetable broth

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish

  • Cooked rice or naan bread, for serving

Instructions:

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Stir in the minced garlic and grated ginger, and cook for another minute until fragrant.

  3. Add the curry powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper to the pot, and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the spices are toasted and fragrant.

  4. Add the rinsed organic red lentils to the pot, along with the diced tomatoes, coconut milk, and vegetable broth. Stir to combine.

  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let the curry simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, or until the lentils are tender and the curry has thickened to your desired consistency.

  6. Season the curry with salt and pepper to taste. If you prefer a smoother consistency, you can use an immersion blender to partially blend the curry.

  7. Serve the organic red lentil curry hot, garnished with fresh cilantro leaves, and accompanied by cooked rice or naan bread.
