Recipe Ingredients for Creamy Broccoli Dal

1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup red lentils
2 cups broccoli
2 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup soy milk
1 tbsp soy sauce (or salt to taste)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Recipe Directions for Creamy Broccoli Dal

  1. First I sizzled the cumin and mustard seeds, then added the onion, browned it a bit, then added the lentils, broccoli stems, and water.

  2. The recipe called for adding the turmeric, pepper flakes, and garam masala later, but I added them while simmering without thinking.

  3. Since I had extra broccoli I wanted to use up, I chopped the florettes quite small and added them for the last 5 minutes or so of simmering. Once the lentils and broccoli were tender (approx. 25 min.), I lowered the heat before adding the lemon juice, soy sauce, nutritional yeast and soy milk. You don't want the soy milk to boil and separate. Adjust the seasoning if necessary and serve immediately.
