Cream of Lentils Gravy

Best Blog Tips

Not all gravies are made equal. Did you know that cream of white beans or cream of lentils could be a delicious and hearty gravy for your next heap of mashed potatoes? Oh, yes, and a tremendously tasty gravy at that! Here is an easy and delicious recipe for this kind of gravy.

2 cups lentils
1 tsp. onion powder, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder (or 1 clove garlic, peeled)
1/2 cup sweet peppers (green)
1/2 cup sweet peppers (red)
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (or 1 clove garlic, peeled)
1/4 tsp. coriander, powder
1/4 tsp. cumin, powder
1/4 tsp. oregano powder
Salt to taste
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 medium tomato, ripe
3 cups water
Cook till everything is soft. It is too dry, add 1/2 cup water.
Process all in the blender till smooth.

Put the lentils in a pot and barely cover them with water. Cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, till they begin to soften. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook till they are the lentils and the tomato are  soft.
Use instead of a gravy over mashed potatoes, baked yams, boiled sweet potatoes or to top plain brown rice.

This sounds fantastic! I never would have thought of making a gravy with lentils. Most vegetarian gravies include mushrooms, the one food I can't stand. Looking forward to trying out this recipe :)
