A red lentil stew recipe with carrots, onions, and Savory Turmeric Blend. Perfect by itself or served over warm grains.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 medium yellow onion, minced

  • 2 cups sliced carrots

  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils

  • 1 tablespoon Frontier Co-op Turmeric Twist Savory Blend

  • 2 to 3 cups vegetable broth or reconstituted Frontier Co-op Vegetable Broth Powder

  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • Frontier Co-op Sea Salt, to taste

  • Cilantro, for topping

  • Frontier Co-op Crushed Red Chili Pepper Flakes, for serving

Directions

    1. Heat a large skillet with high sides or a stock pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until translucent and fragrant; 6 to 8 minutes. Add in the carrots and cook for another 4 minutes, just to start the carrots cooking.
    2. Add red lentils, Savory Turmeric Blend and vegetable broth. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for about 22 to 24 minutes. The lentils should be tender and starting to break apart.
    3. Add coconut milk and  cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the coconut milk is hot and the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice, salt to taste, cilantro and red chili flakes.

     

    RECIPE TIP:

    This meal is lovely as is but also works on top of cooked grains, such as brown rice.
