Lightly spiced Red lentils (vegan and low fat ready to eat once cooked or added to other ingredients)


2 cups red lentils

4 cups cold water

1 teaspoon vegetable bouillon (or a veg stock cube)

2 teaspoons garam masala

1 cinnamon stick or a ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch chilli flakes

Place lentils in large sauce pan, ocver with the water add the spices and boulion bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer, stir a few times and cook for roughly 20 minutes until the lentils have absorbed  the water and are tender.

Remove cinnamon stick and eat immediately with veg and rice

Alternative fry in low fat cooking spray and garlic for 5 minutes, you can add a slice of creamed coconut or coconut milk but that will increase the calories and fat.
