Ingredients
  1. 1 cup lentils
  2. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  3. 1 onion, finely chopped
  4. 1 1/2 cups tomatoes, chopped (~2 medium)
  5. 1/2 tsp turmeric
  6. 1/4 tsp pepper
  7. 1/2 tsp chili powder
  8. 1 tbsp olive oil
  9. 1 tsp mustard, ground
  10. 1/2 tsp cumin, ground
  11. 2 tsp curry powder
  12. 1 1/2 cups broccoli
Instructions
  1. Chop the garlic and set aside to rest* (this will be used later). Now chop the onion and tomatoes.
  2. In a large pot, combine the lentils, onion, tomatoes, turmeric, pepper, and chili powder. Add enough water to cover the top of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30-45 minutes, or until lentils are soft. Check periodically, and add more water if needed.
  3. While the lentils are cooking, steam broccoli for 3-5 minutes, or until brightly green and soft. Don't overcook! Set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan, add the chopped garlic, olive oil, mustard, cumin, and curry. Saute in pan for 2-3 minutes, or until fragrant. Set aside.
  5. Once lentils are done cooking, add in sauteed spices and broccoli. Mix until well combined and heated. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
  1. Letting garlic "rest" simply means waiting to cook it, so that all of the good enzymes can activate and boost its wonderful properties. If you cook garlic too soon, you could miss out on some of its amazing health benefits.
  2. Can be frozen for 1 month.
