Health Rating
Lentils are a great source of plant-based protein!

Ingredients


1 medium Yellow onion
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
2 cup Brown lentils, raw
1 medium potato Sweet potato (diced into 1/4-1/2 inch cubes)
2 medium Carrots (sliced)
3 tbsp Curry powder (hot or mild)
1/4 tsp Ground cloves (optional)
1 can(s) (16 oz) Diced tomatoes, canned
1 can(s) (16 oz) Tomato sauce, canned
3 cup Vegetable stock/broth, low sodium
1 can(s) (13.5 oz) Coconut milk (full fat)
10 cup Brown rice, long-grain, cooked
1/2 medium Red onion (finely diced)
1/2 bunch Cilantro (coriander) (or green onions)

Instructions


  1. Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Peel the sweet potato and carrots. Dice the sweet potato and slice the carrots.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, sweet potato, carrots, lentils, curry powder, cloves, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and vegetable broth to the slow cooker. Stir to combine. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for four hours or low for 7-8 hours. Once cooked, the lentils should be tender and most of the liquid should be absorbed.
  3. Stir the can of coconut milk into the lentils. Taste and adjust the salt or other spices as needed (the amount of salt needed will depend on the type of broth used and the salt content of the canned tomatoes).
  4. To serve, add 1 cup cooked and warm rice to a bowl followed by 1 cup of the lentil mixture. Top with finely diced red onion and fresh cilantro
