Oh boy. What a simple, fast and filling meal, and look how pretty! The swiss chard had been in the fridge maybe a day too long, so it was starting to get a little sad. But tossing it in withe some well flavored red lentils made for a nice, healthy meal. Mmmm! Vegetarian dinner.
- 1/2 pound red lentils
- 3/4 can lite coconut milk
- 2 C. water or vegetable broth
- 1 small red onion
- 1 T. curry paste
- 1 bunch swiss chard – chopped into pieces and cleaned
In a big pot, heat a little oil and fry up that diced red onion. After the onion is cooked, toss in the sorted and cleaned lentils. Stir for a minute or two and pour in the coconut milk and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Add the curry paste, adding more to taste. Cook until the lentils are nice and soft. Add more water if needed. For the last 5 minutes toss in the swiss chard and any salt or pepper to taste.
