Tried a new recipe tonight for Mango Lentil Dal. This turned out very well. The only change I might consider for the next time is to sub curry for the turmeric. But that’s only because I love curry. And I might add a little coconut milk. And some slice pineapple chunks. But other than that – this recipe is great!
No, really. It is very good. I was just thinking out loud.
Giving credit where credit is due, this recipe comes from the tome Eat to Live Cookbook, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. It’s on page 172. Naturally, due to copyright issues I cannot legally (or ethically should I) post the actual recipe. It’s a great book. You should buy a copy. You don’t have to go on his diet / health plan, just try the recipes. We have yet to find one that wasn’t great tasting.
What I can do is give you a list of ingredients:
Water (to cook the cup of lentils in, of course)
Fresh grated ginger
Cracked black pepper
A couple of ripe mangoes (learn how to peel and cut a mango here)
Chopped fresh spinach
and last but not least:
Chopped fresh cilantro.
I suppose you could try to cook this yourself, without the book, and just using quantities “to taste.” However, I highly recommend buying the book.
And no, I receive no remuneration (of any kind) from Dr. Fuhrman or anyone else for that matter. I could only hope…
Live the exotic life for a day – try Mango Lentil Dal!
