Healthy bean curry, great for vegetarians and vegans. Original recipe calls for red lentils and toasted whole cumin seeds (pestle or mill ground), but any lentils and ground cumin will work (cooking times may need to be adjusted). Adding coconut milk or coconut oil is suggested for flavor, but will change the nutritional balance.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large white onion, chopped
1/2 cup dry lentils
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 pinch cayenne pepper
