Stuffed Bell Peppers With Curried Lentils Recipe

What You'll Need


1 cup lentils

¼ tsp celery seeds

1 bay leaf

2 tsp sea salt

3 cups water

½ cup carrot (about 1 carrot), diced

½ fennel bulb, diced

½ red onion, diced

1 small zucchini, diced

1 Tbsp yellow curry powder

4 medium to large red bell peppers

1 ½ cups vegetable stock

1 bunch of kale, cleaned


How to Make It


1 Cook lentils with 3 cups water, bay leaf, salt and celery seeds until just soft, approximately 25 – 30 minutes on medium / low heat. Strain when finished.

2 In a small bowl combine the curry powder with a little vegetable stock.

3 Heat a little vegetable stock or water in a sauté pan, and add all of the vegetables. Cook for approximately 2 minutes. Add the curry mixture, and cook another minute or two. Combine the strained lentils, and the curried vegetable, and mix well.

4 Cut off the tops and clean the inside of the bell peppers (save the tops). Fill the peppers with the curried lentil mixture. Do not pack them.

5 Place peppers with tops, and the vegetable stock into a deep baking dish, and cook at 350 degrees F for approximately 40-45 minutes. Then cook at 450 degrees F another 3 minutes, or until edges are crispy.
