Lisa Oz's Lentils
with Chia Seeds
½ fresh Jalapeno (peeled, seeded, minced)
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.
