Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup red lentils (soak them for about 4 hours; it makes them a little easier on the digestive system)
  • 3 cups red rooibos tea
  • 2 apples, cored and diced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric (optional, but highly recommended)
  • Maple syrup, to taste (I buy Trader Joe's or online for the best value)
  • So Delicious┬« Dairy-Free Vanilla Coconut Milk, as needed
  • Pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  1. Once the lentils have been soaked and drained, place them in a pot with the brewed tea.
  2. Bring to a low boil and then reduce heat to low to medium.
  3. After ten minutes, stir in the diced apple and spices.
  4. Cook for another 30 to 40 minutes, until the lentils are tender.
  5. Ladle about half a cup into each of 4 small serving bowls. Drizzle each with a bit of maple syrup and splash with a generous amount of coconut milk.
