I just realized that I have (some) vegetarians coming for dinner tonight; I am adding a lentil dish to the menu. I have on hand a good spice shelf and some fresh ginger.
So I am going to brown onions and celery and cook them with French lentils. What can I do to make this interesting? Sesame oil? Especially, any good ideas for spicing?
I also have red lentils on hand, I could do something with them instead of the French lentils.
Curried carrot/ coconut milk soup
Cabbage stuffed with lamb and Moroccan spices in red sauce
Rice and chickpeas with a different blend of Moroccan spices and a cartload of chopped parsley
mini zucchini, steamed
(We don't eat like this every night; it's the Sabbath.)
