If serving over a bed of Basmati Rice, we suggest cooking 2 cups of rice in 4 cups of water.


Place all ingredients in a covered cooking pot or dish and place on the stovetop or in the microwave oven and cook for about 45 minutes on "high", mixing about every 15 minutes.  If cooking on the stovetop, reduce the heat once the ingredients begin to boil and let simmer.  (To enlarge the photo of the curried chick peas and lentils cooking, click on the photo or link)

If cooking in a crock-pot, we suggest placing the lentils and preheated water in the crock pot and heat on "high" until the lentils absorb most of the water before adding the other ingredients.  For faster cooking, the vegetables can be precooked. 

The Curried Chick Peas and Lentils are done when the lentils are soft and the vegetables are tender.

Serve as is or over a bed of Basmati Rice.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
