Coconut Lentils and Kale

I've been planning a RAW Week Menu today: pulling recipes, creating nightly prep worksheets, putting together grocery lists, etc. All this work made me really lazy when it came to making dinner. So I was almost positive dinner was going to suck tonight. But guess what? It totally didn't.

Not only did it not suck, it was quick, easy, and hella healthy.

1 c dried lentils
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp minced ginger 
1 can coconut milk
1 bunch kale, stems reserved

  1. Cook your lentils (I cook my lentils with veggie broth as the liquid but do whatever you want); while that's happening you can kill time by de-stemming your kale. Chopping the stems. Mincing the ginger. Opening the can of milk, etc.
  2. Melt that coconut oil in a big pan and get her all hot. Toss in the ginger and the kale stems; cook for a couple of minutes to insure the stems get tender and the ginger is smelling mighty fine.  
  3. Add in your kale and let that start to cook down a bit (maybe like a minute or two). Add the coconut milk and lentils.
  4. Let simmer for 5 minutes or so and then gobble up, babies.
