1 package Trader Joe's steamed lentils (in the produce section)
3 Tbl olive oil
1 small onion, diced (about 1 to 1-1/2 cups)
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp salt
4 cups liquid, such as chicken stock, vegetable stock or water (I use half broth and half water)
|Trader Joe's sells plain steamed lentils, easy to use and no added flavors.|
|Saute until softened, they will continue to cook as the lentils and broth cook.|
2. Add rinsed lentils, turmeric and salt and stir to combine.
|Stir the lentils to loosen up, they come out of the package a little clumped.|
|It will be fairly soupy at first, the lentils hold up well if you simmer them for about 30 minutes or so to reduce the liquid|
4. Serve lentils over rice, or as its own soup. Keeps well in the fridge.
