Moroccan Lentils 

This recipe is also an experiment. 

Raizel just came home from camp so now I need to cook more!


2 cups lentils 

3 cloves garlic crushed

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon paprika 

1 tablespoon salt (or less)

11/2 teaspoons ginger

1/2 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons tomato paste

The recipe calls for fresh cilantro, which I do not have in the house right now. So, if I don’t buy any today, I will adjust the seasoning and try coriander and maybe use my Moroccan spice mix.

The recipe also called for an onion but my kids don’t like onions so I might add onion powder and see how it tastes too.


Place ingredients in crockpot, blend together and cook on low. I will adjust the seasoning when it is done.

This could probably be made in a pressure cooker but lentils can easily be overcooked when cooked by themselves in a pressure cooker.

Here is the picture 


Here is the finished product:


I have to apologize, I see now that there is a shadow over the finished product. It is too late now for natural lighting. 

For some reason I couldn’t get the taste quite right. I ended up adding some onion powder, coriander, cinnamon and turmeric in addition to more cumin, salt and pepper.

Cilantro would have been great, but, no time! 

Yaffa left for camp today and Raizel came home. Then, we went out for my sister-in-law’s birthday, and I took my car into the shop.

Raizel said, “it is delicious. I am glad it is just lentils and nothing else.”
