  • Glug vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp nigella seeds black onion
  • 100 g / 3.5oz / 1/2 cup red lentils
  • 250 ml / 1 cup vegetable stock
  • Squeeze lemon - I freeze juice in icecube trays so I always have some
  • 1 large handful shredded kale
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Fry the onion in the oil for a few minutes until softened, add the spices and the lentils. Fry for another few minutes until the spices are fragrant.
  2. Add the stock, simmer over a low heat or on a heat diffuser, stirring from time to time for about half an hour until the lentils are soft, but still holding their shape, add more stock if needed - you want them to be quite soupy. Add the lemon, stir in the kale and cook for a few more minutes until it is wilted.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Recipe Notes

We had this two evenings running, the second time I fried some peppers along with the onions. Use whatever you have.
