I love anything to do with Indian spices, and I usually throw something like this together when I have random items of food in my fridge and pantry. What turns out always surprises me, more often than when I meticulously plan a recipe. So feel free to add or remove anything to this recipe to make it yours!


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 2 carrots, sliced

  • 3 celery spears, sliced down the middle and then chopped

  • 2 green onions, sliced

  • 1 C dried red lentils (washed)
