  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne (optional)
  • 1 (28 oz.) can no-salt-added crushed tomatoes
  • 8 oz. red potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ cup lentils
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • ½ cup frozen green peas
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté the onion until translucent (3-4 minutes), stirring frequently.
  2. Increase the heat to medium-high. Stir in the cumin, curry powder, and cayenne. Cook until fragrant (30 seconds).
  3. Stir in the tomatoes, potatoes, broth, lentils, and carrots. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until lentils are tender (30-40 minutes). Stir and add water as needed to keep from sticking.
  4. Stir in the peas and simmer to heat. Remove from the heat and stir in parsley.
