Lentil Curry with Cashews and Yogurt

Serves 6
Time 2 hr
Protein-rich lentils are a great choice to include in your regular diet. Here, they're prepared with curry powder, tomatoes and onions and spooned over rice with cashews and yogurt on top.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup brown lentils sorted and rinsed
  • 1 large tomato chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 3/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
Method

Place rice in a strainer and rinse under cool water until water runs clear. Transfer to a medium pot. Cook rice over medium-low heat, stirring gently, until fragrant and toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 4 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until water is absorbed, about 1 hour. Uncover pot, fluff rice and set aside.

Meanwhile, simmer the lentils in 3 cups water, partially covered, for 20 minutes. Add tomato, onion, garlic, curry powder and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Simmer for 30 minutes more, covered, until lentils are tender. Serve over rice. Top with cashews and a dollop of yogurt.
