Thank you to Kara Aubin founder of the Ayurvedic Wellness Center in Michigan for this easy, delicious recipe and tempting photo.
Easy to digest, and quick cooking, red lentils are an Ayurvedic pantry staple. Their digestibility makes them a great plant protein option for those with Vata-style (gassy) digestion. Red lentils are a good source of iron, and act as a blood builder and liver cleanser.
This one-pot recipe is gently spiced but big on flavor. Eat alone as a meal or serve with dosa or a side of greens if you have strong Agni.
2 TBS organic ghee
½ tsp fenugreek powder
1 tsp coriander powder
¼ tsp hing/asafetida
½ tsp Himalayan mineral salt
1 cup red lentils, rinsed well
2 ½ cups water
3 TBS chopped fresh basil
May you and your loved ones enjoy good health and well being,
