Completely Unauthentic But Pretty Good Tasting Dahl

This recipe has evolved over time from something completely different. It was originally a butter-less, chicken-less, butter chicken recipe but soy chicken is crazy expensive and lentils are just amazing. They are packed full of fiber, protein and iron and my son will actually eat them so they are perfect.

1 cup green lentils
1/2 a large sweet onion (or a whole small one), chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 can of tomato soup
3/4 cup soymilk
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp ground ginger
olive oil
small handful of cherry tomatoes quartered

What to do:
1. Cook lentils according to package directions.
2. In a frying pan or wok over medium heat, fry onion for about a minute then add garlic and fry both for another minute. Add green pepper and fry until onions turn translucent.
3. Stir in the can of tomato soup, then stir in the soy milk.
4. Add all the spices and mix well. Strain the lentils once they are cooked and mix those in too.
5. Top with tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika. Serve with naan or rice.
