Quick Curried Beans



1 medium chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
2 dried red chili pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups cooked green lentils
1 cup chopped, peeled Granny Smith apple
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce


Cook lentils covered with water & soft boil 20 minutes.

Saute onions, garlic & red peppers until tender, about 5 minutes. Add spices, stir and cook briefly.

Add beans, apple, soy sauce, and simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes, or until apple is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Remove & discard peppers. When cooking is complete, stir in lemon juice and serve.

May be served in Pita Pockets (serves 2):
