Ah, it will be lovely to add some love apples to this simple dahl, but until then, here is a basic dahl using some of our lovely July share.
Dice an onion and sautee it for 5 – 10 minutes in about a tablespoon of your favorite curry powder and a healthy dollop (2 tbsp?) of a nice olive oil or ghee. Add one or two diced zucchini and a few finely chopped leaves of kale or chard, and saute for a few more minutes.
Add this mixture to some lentils which you have already rinsed and soaked. Make sure to add enough fresh water for a long cooking time. Add some diced potatoes (I think last week’s were the best potatoes ever!), and some diced or sliced sweet carrots. Bring this mixture to a boil, then let it simmer for 30 minutes or more, making sure you don’t run out of water. Add salt and more curry to tase, serve over rice, and enjoy (perhaps with white wine with some fresh basil…or basil lemonade).
(I added this to the recipes section, but thought I’d add it here as well.)
