Can we NOT have a shrimp advert on a vegan site PLEASE?
Just to make up for that I am posting my clandestine pea and lentil curry that just 'sort of happened' on my stove top last night.
1/2 bag of frozen peas
1 cup of lentils
1/2 a red onion
4 little brocoli trees (I know there is a more 'grown up' name...but come on)
2 large tomatoes
raisins and walnuts at your discretion
1 tablespoon of chili and garlic curry paste
1 tablespoon of crushed garlic and ginger paste
2 cups of water to start and than as needed
1 tablespoon of tahina (I just can't stop using this stuff)
Add water, peas and lentils to large pot (I made the mistake of using a medium sized pot)
Let these guys hang out for at least 10 minutes on their own and then add your additional ingredients (with the exception of the walnuts).
The peas will become quite mushy...which is what I was looking for.
Let this simmer for another 10 minutes and than plate a top a bed of rice. I actually added rice to the dish while simmering....but it might look a bit more presentable if the curry is added to a bed of, let's say....jasmine scented rice...or brown basmatti.
This is the time to add your walnuts, tamirand chutney and perhaps a sprig of cilantro.
