Lentil Salad With Curry Spices and Yogurt

Time: 50 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups French lentils
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne (to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Directions

  • 1 Rinse the lentils and place them in a medium saucepan; cover with water and add the bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer (the original recipe said to boil for 15-20 minutes -- I find it takes longer to cook the lentils).
  • 2 Meanwhile, bring a small pot of water to a boil and drop the onion in for 15 seconds. Scoop out with a strainer and splash with vinegar.
  • 3 Drop in the carrot for 1 minute to blanch.
  • 4 In a small bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 1 tb vinegar, and spices.
  • 5 Drain the lentils when tender; remove the bay leaf and toss all ingredients together. Toss in cilantro before serving.
