Lentil Curry with Eggplant & Spinach
And the final # 3 dish for this package of Trader Joe's steamed lentils is a lentil curry with eggplant, spinach, potatoes, and cauliflower.
I made it very easy on myself by using Trader Joe's Korma Curry Simmer Sauce. I sauted a chopped onion in olive oil with a couple of shakes of cumin seeds. I added the diced baby potatoes, covered, and cooked for a couple of minutes, then added the cauliflower and eggplant with a little extra oil and a generous pinch of salt. Covered again and cooked 3-4 minutes. I then added the lentils and the Korma Curry Simmer Sauce. Partially covered and simmered for about 10 minutes. I added about 1/2 cup of water and simmered another 5 minutes. Added fresh baby spinach, which promptly wilted, and served in a pure white bowl.
I have to say, I'm really warming up to eggplant. But no more lentils this week! Enjoy!
