Daal with Spinach

Something different for Meatless Monday. Not a perfect recipe, and it doesn’t make a ton, but a tasty meal.


3/4 cup split red lentils, washed and drained

5 oz spinach, cut into strips

2 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp chili powder

2 tsp lemon juiceĀ 


Cover lentils with 1 and 1/4 cup hot water. Bring to a boil and simmer until mushy (I think this took maybe 20 minutes). Add more water if they dry out. They turn yellow when done.

Sweat spinach for a few minutes in another pan.

Heat oil in pan. Add garlic until golden. Toast spices.

Mix all ingredients together. Add lemon juice and season with salt.
