  • 1 cup green lentils. I chose Bob’s Red Mill Lentils.
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 baseball sized red onions
  • 1 cup of lentils with 3 cups of water, add the bay leaf and bring to the boil for 2-3 minutes Then lower the heat and allow them to cook, covered, for 25-30 minutes Preparing the quinoa:Rinse the quinoa, put it in a heavy pot that has a lid that you will be able to seal tightly. I used this guy because the lid is a great fit. Add three cups of water and season the quinoa with cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Cover the pot tightly and bring to a boil. Once it’s boiling, lower the heat and cook for 15 minutes Remove from the heat and keep the quinoa covered for another 5 minutes, then uncover and fluff with a fork. You may notice the small spirals (the germ) has separated separating from the seeds and is curling around.
