Directions

  1. Place the red and brown lentils in a pan with the water and turmeric. Cook over medium-low heat until tender, about 45 minutes. Drain, reserving 2 1/2 cups of the cooking liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the canola oil in a large, deep pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until tender and transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and garlic; cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Mix in the curry powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and cloves. Add the cooked lentils, reserved cooking liquid, pumpkin, potatoes, and carrots. Cover, and cook over medium-low heat until the vegetables are tender, 35 to 45 minutes. Stir in the spinach and apple. Cook until the pumpkin can be easily pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes more. Adjust seasonings to taste.

delicious, but with made some adjustments to this recipe: i doubled the amount of curry powder and apple, and increased the spinach, carrot, and onion. I did not add the cooked lentils when i added the pumpkin etc as i think this would make it too mushy. instead, i added it with the apple and spinach step.

Fantastic, I think if I made it exactly per instructions it would be *****+! I had lots of fresh pumpkin and was able to make this from mostly what I had in my cabinets and fridge--didn't have some of the ingredients but substituted courgette for the carrot, cinnamon for the cloves, and I didn't have curry powder (I upped the cumin). I cut down on the time needed by baking the pumpkin, pre-cooking the potatoes, using tinned lentils, using canned tomatoes instead of fresh, and frozen, thawed and drained spinach. Next time I'll be sure to have all of the correct ingredients. This is great with brown rice. Thanks for such a great recipe!

I like the idea of this, but it was way too much lentil in proportion to the rest of the ingredients. As a result, it was very bland and not at all pumpkiny. After tasting it, I added more spices (doubling them) and a bit of coconut milk, and still it was disappointing. I’d suggest using, at most, half the amount of lentils—maybe even less—and increasing the pumpkin.
