Red Lentil Sauce

Red Lentil Sauce

Here is a recipe that is just crying out to be modified and used in a different way.

This dish comes from the book Eat to Live and the sauce is intended to be drizzled onto vegetables.
We made the dish according to the book, and liked the flavor, but really think it should be made in a different way.

Maybe thicker - more like hummus that you can eat with pita bread.
Maybe much, much thicker - more like a dip for veggies and crackers.
Maybe on top of fish or chicken instead of on vegetables.

Again - the flavor is great, but you might want to consider different ways to use the sauce.

This dish is simple to make.
You boil red lentils, chopped onion, garlic, and carrot juice, then cover and simmer the lentils for 20 minutes until they are tender.

Then you blend the lentils with a vegetable broth bouillon cube, cumin, and a little bit of Balsamic vinegar.

Transfer to a dish and serve!
