Meat Free Monday: Low Fat Oil Free Lentil “Tim” Curry


It’s a Tim curry because I’m Tim, it’s a curry,  and I wrote the recipe. Also, it can’t decide whether it wants to be a mad scientist, and evil clown, or a professional pirate when it grows up.

Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups cooked lentils
  • 2 medium potatoes, cooked and diced. Sweet potatoes taste even better than white potatoes,  but both work well
  • 2/3 to 1 cup cooked cut carrots
  • 1/4 to 1/2 medium red onion, sliced thin
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • Curry powder and red pepper to taste
  • Salt and black pepper 

Directions:

  1. If you haven’t done so already, cook the potatoes, lentils, and carrots
  2. Simmer the onion,garlic, and red bell pepper in a little water until slightly soft
  3. Stir in the lentils, potatoes, and carrots
  4. Add curry and ground red pepper to taste 
  5. Cook covered on low heat for 10 minutes, until everything is hot, and the flavors have mixed. If it doesn’t treats quite right, add curry, stir, and simmer a few minutes longer.
  6. Add salt and black pepper to taste on the plate. You’ll use a lot less salt that way, and it will taste better.
  7. Eat over rice for best effect

    It’s hard to express how much I like this recipe, so I’ll let a more eloquent Tim do it for me:

      This looks really good! I’m definitely going to have to give this one a try, are you able to replace lentils with any other protein-rich meatless ingredients?

        I think it would change the taste and consistency a lot to use anything except lentils, but it could still be really good.

        You’d have to experiment with the seasonings. I’d think chickpeas might be a good alternative.
