Lentil Paste/Lentil Stew - Extravagance House
- 500 g yellow lentils
- 2 l water
- 330 ml homemade tomato paste
- 160 g diced onion
- 100 g grated carrot
- 15 g garlic (2-3 cloves)
- 200 g frozen spinach
- 1 tbsp homemade seasoning or 1/2 vegetable cube stock
- 1 tsp pepper
Wash the lentils until the water is clean. Prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Boil in 1.5 l water and tomato paste. Boil for 20 minutes.
Dice the onion and grate the carrot.
Add them to the lentils with the remaining water. Boil for another 10-15 minutes, if you want a stew. Boil 20 more minutes if you want to make Lentil Paste.
Add the spinach, homemade seasoning (the cube), pepper, and garlic. Boil 5-10 minutes, depending on how fast the spinach will cook.
Put the lentils into a blender or use a vertical one, and blend to a paste.
Serve with white rice or wholemeal bread, for a vegetarian dish or if you are fasting.
If you want, add turkey meatballs, chicken breast, or pork.
