- 1 cup dry red lentils
- 3 cups water
- 3-4 carrots, grated
- Small handful cilantro
- 1 inch piece ginger, grated
- Black pepper to taste
- Optional: coconut aminos to taste
- Rinse and drain the lentils to remove any dirt or debris.
- Add all ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover tightly with lid. Cook until lentils are soft and have absorbed most of the water.
TIP: Lentils are a great source of protein but don’t contain all the essential amino acids our bodies need (making it an incomplete protein). If you simply pair it with some rice or quinoa, however, you’ll get the amino acids that the lentils are lacking!
