I decided to make spinach and tomato Dal, from Sundays at Moosewood, for dinner tonight:
I've been fiddling around with this recipe quite a bit, and may have it almost exactly where I want it -- it's still not spicy enough, but it is aromatic, flavorful, and deeeeeeeee-licious! (Brown rice hiding underneath.) Dan hasn't tried any of this yet, but we'll see what he thinks.
I love dal -- it's a relatively easy meal, utilizing mostly pantry staples with a handfull of fresh/frozen ingredients. It's only minimally time-consuming, most of the cooking time spent simmering away unattended on the stove. I'm glad I've put the effort (and ingredients) into figuring out this recipe, because it was totally worth it! Another go-to meal to add to my arsenal.
What are some of your favorite go-to meals??
