Everyone knows that Nazareth is the best restaurant in Toronto. But you can’t always make it out there. Sometimes you just have to make your lentils at home. Here’s my recipe – it’s not really Nazareth style food. It isn’t even really Ethiopian. But it’s satisfying and simple and heavy on the lentils:
Dahl – saute onions and garlic, add spices (incl pepper) add red lentils. Add water and 1 can of tomato paste. When done mix in cilantro
Salad – quinoa, cubed cucumber, chopped celery, grape tomatoes, top with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and hot sauce and zatar.
Place Salad on large plate, leaving space in the middle. Spoon Dahl into middle until it is piled high. Eat with friends or lovers from the same bowl.
