Squash Lentil Curry

Serve this rich squash curry over brown rice, garnished with a dollop of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt, if desired. This dish is excellent for putting vegetables at the center of your table.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown lentils
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 4 cups squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1½ Tbsp. red curry paste
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • ½ tsp. turmeric
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • ½ cup light coconut milk
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced

Directions

  1. Cook the lentils in a large pot of boiling water until tender (35-40 minutes). Drain and set aside.
  2. While the lentils are cooking,  sauté onion in oil over medium heat until soft (5-8 minutes). Add squash and vegetable broth. Simmer, covered, until squash is soft (15-20 minutes).
  3. Using an immersion blender or working in small batches with a kitchen towel loosely covering the open vent of a regular blender, puree the squash mixture until smooth. Whisk in curry paste, curry powder, turmeric, salt, cayenne, cinnamon, and coconut milk.
  4. Stir in cooked lentils and tomatoes. Simmer together to combine flavors (10 minutes). Serve hot.
