I’m always looking for new ways to cook lentils. Last week I made the Tamarind Lentils from Veganomicon. My expectations weren’t particularly high, but this recipe is something else. I actually subbed pomegranate molasses for tamarind paste since I had one and not the other. I might add that I also made my own garam masala according to Wikipedia’s (heh, I know, I know) directions. (Nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom.) Not sure if it tasted exactly the way the Veganomicon authors intended, but the results were amazing. Sweet, tangy, thick, spicy and delicious.

I ate the lentils with odds and ends in my fridge that needed to be used up. This produced a very old-school health food restaurant looking plate. But I promise much more flavorful and very tasty.

Clockwise from top:

Moroccan/ Israeli raw carrot salad, from Olive Trees and Honey: A Treasury of Vegetarian Recipes from Jewish Communities Around the World.

Mexican Millet, from Veganomicon.

Tamarind Lentils, also from Veganomicon.

And finally, steamed kale.
