Lisa Oz's Lentils

with Chia Seeds

Ingredients

½ fresh Jalapeno (peeled, seeded, minced)
3½ Cup Vegetable Stock
½ tsp Kosher Salt
¼ tsp ground Cardamom
1 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Chia Seeds
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 large white Onion
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 tsp minced Garlic
2 Tbsp minced fresh Ginger
2 tsp Turmeric
2 rinsed Cup Red Lentils
1 14 oz can fire-roasted crushed Tomatoes
4 Tbsp chopped Cilantro
optional cooked brown rice for serving

Directions

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until lightly caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add cumin seeds, cardamom, and garlic; sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Stir in 4 cups water, ginger, turmeric, jalapeño, vegetable stock, lentils, and tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in salt, chia seeds, and cilantro; serve immediately with brown rice on the side, if using.
