spice question for lentil dish

AdinaA | Mar 11, 2011 07:13 AM

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.


1st course:

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


Chocolate torte

Any suggestions?

(We don't eat like this every night; it's the Sabbath.)
