      A friend sent this to me today, sounds pretty good.


      2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
      1 large white onion, diced
      1 tsp minced garlic
      2 tbsp minced fresh ginger
      2 tsp turmeric
      1 tsp cumin seeds
      1 tbsp fresh jalapeno, peeled, seeded, and minced
      1/4 tsp ground cardamom
      1 tbsp chia seeds
      4 cups water
      3 tbsp vegetable base-no MSG or 3 1/2 cups vegetable broth
      2 cups red lentils
      2 1/2 cups fire-roasted crushed tomatoes, undrained
      4 tbsp chopped cilantro

      1. Heat oil in large saucepan.
      2. Add onions and saute until lightly carmelized.

      Add cumin seeds, cardamom, garlic, and saute 2 minutes.
      4. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, simmer, stirring often, until all lentils are tender, about 15 minutes.

      Planned overs–possiblities are endless.
