Vegetables and...

Late Sunday afternoon, it was time for some kitchen magic.

It felt like a day for a vegetable concoction, vegetables tossed with an interesting topping of some sort. I started with red lentils, throwing a cup of red lentils in with 2 cups of water and some spices, brought the mix to a boil, then lowered the heat to a simmer and waited for a while. What spices? Let's see, some tumeric, garlic, cumin, and red pepper flakes jumped into the red lentil mix. Cooking...

Vegetables - some microwaved, some raw - jumped into a big bowl. Today's mix included sweet potatoes, red peppers, corn, and chick peas.

After simmering the red lentils for about a half of an hour, I added cubed tofu and sliced portabello mushrooms to the pot and let it simmer for another twenty minutes or so. Then, it was time to toss the bowl of veggies with the tasty red lentil mixture.
