That's totally my kind of cooking. I'm jealous of your climate: English weather is everything it claims to be. But this looks perfect for a rainy evening, and we should be having plenty of those.


Already a winner in my book, what with it being so easy! And healthy! And goodness knows I really ought to go on a bit of a diet (paunchy paunch paunch).

Skye, I think this would be perfect for a rainy night! And isn't English weather the weather of poets? (Sorry - trying to find a bright side here!)

Su-Lin, that's exactly why I started making these bean dishes! I've been eating out way too much, and lots of frozen dumplings at home (shhh, don't tell Logan!). This one really stood out as something I'd come back to - it's just too easy.


It sounds wonderful . . .

BUT . . .

I'm seeing a carb count here like there was no next Wednesday. And when yer diabetic, carbs are, in large measure, Teh Enemy. (Which is why vegetarianism is right out for me, and for Type IIs like me.)

What does one do to balance off a dish like this against the need to cut back starches?

Marchbanks, that is true, and I'm sorry you're dealing with that problem. I suppose you could start here by substituting dark, leafy greens for the potatoes. Kale would probably be delicious. And then for the lentils, I don't know - at least they're high in protein, if also carbs. Maybe use a low-carb meat replacement, like seitan, for some of them? Eh.



Yum yum! I just made a Bittman recipe--the Autumn Millet Bake from the same book. Simple, like this, and excellent. It's a good sign when I already have everything for this sitting in my refrigerator.


this Lentils and Potatoes with Curry looks really good, I want to try it!!!!
I will go home to cook!


This looks incredible!

Thanks, guys! And Amy, you're totally right - I love when I see I have everything available!
