Recipe Ingredients for Spiced Lentils

1 tbs. canola oil
1 tbs. butter
1 cups onions, inced
2 cups lentils
5 cups water
1 stalks celery, minced
1 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. dry mustard
1 tbs. ginger, minced fresh
1 tsp. coriander, ground
1/2 tsp. turmeric
3 tbs. lemon juice
1 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1/2 pound spinach, fresh chopped
1 medium apples, peeled and chopped

Recipe Directions for Spiced Lentils

  1. Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet, and melt in the butter. Add the onion, and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and turning golden.

  2. Meanwhile, place the lentils and water in a large saucepan or Dutch oven, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, partially cover, and let simmer for 15 minutes.

  3. Add to the onion: celery, cumin, mustard, ginger, coriander and turmeric. Cook together over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, or until the celery is tender. Scrape all of this into the lentils, add the lemon juice and garlic, and stir. Simmer, partially covered, for 10 more minutes -- until the lentils are tender.

  4. Stir in the salt, black pepper, cayenne, spinach and apples. Cook for just a few minutes longer -- until the spinach is wilted and the apples begiun to soften. Serve hot.
