Z & I love this dish. It’s easier on their tummies than beans and they tend it’s favour smooth textures. Lentils simmered with a bay leaf and yogurt with a pinch of cumin … Lentil Parfait! Although I’ve listed green lentils here, any lentils will do. Be sure to follow the package instructions on how to cook them as some take longer than others.
Makes 4 servings
1/2 cup green lentils
1/2 a dried or 1 full fresh bay leaf
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
Pinch of cumin
Rinse lentils and place in a pot with bay leaf. Add water to cover 2″ above lentils. Bring to a boil, partially cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.
Drain lentils, if necessary, and blend till desired consistency is reached.
Place a portion in a bowl and top with yogurt and cumin.
