Yellow Lentil Curry (Tavoor Dal)

Lentils are a kickin’ legume. They are exceptionally high in protein and have good amounts of iron and potassium too. And, they are delicious. What follows is an extremely easy recipe for lentil curry. I like this served with some sort of bread (pita or otherwise) for dipping and a green salad. Delicious!

1 lb yellow lentils
1 medium yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 T olive oil
1 T curry powder
1 T cumin
2 t ginger
1 t salt
1 t chili powder
2 T veggie bullion
4 cups water
(or 4 cups veg. broth)

Add olive oil, onions, celery, and garlic to pan and heat on medium-high until onions and celery are tender.  Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 20 minutes or until lentils are tender.  Serve with bread or rice.
