1 pound dried small red lentils, washed and picked over
1 (13.5-ounce) can light coconut milk
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion; sauté 5 minutes or until just beginning to brown. Stir in the water, lentils, coconut milk, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 40 minutes or until the lentils are soft.
Remove and discard the bay leaf. Then stir in salt and pepper.
I would give this recipe a higher rating if there were a few more ingredients added (which I did):
It is a great base recipe however for getting creative and doing your own variations. It's very simple, and my family loved it. Very healthy too.
