The latest Lentil Experiment: "Moroccan" Lentil Soup/Stew

a little over a cup of dried red lentils
about half a cup of dried chickpeas
about half a cup of dried mung beans
2 medium onions
5 cloves of garlic
4 diced fresh tomatoes
about a cup of diced carrot
about half a cup of diced celery

salt
pepper
probably almost a quarter cup of ground ginger (the dry stuff, not fresh - it is different)
about 2 tbsp of ground cinnamon
maybe 1 tbsp of cayenne
2-3 tbsp of whole cumin seeds (I was out of the ground stuff)
a pinch of dried chili flakes
a pinch of paprika
1.5 tbsp of honey

Enough water to fill the crockpot on top of all that stuff

Let simmer in crockpot overnight.

It was yummy when I woke up this morning, but I didn't have time to deal with the fridge and lack of space, so I put more water in and left it going.

When I get home I plan to add a little bit of couscous (maybe half a cup) so there's a little startch and texture there, but I don't want to simmer the couscous - it'd melt into the lentil goo if I did. I might also toss in a pinch of clove to make the flavour a little bit richer.

I look forward to trying that.

You do know that there are foods that don't involve lentils, right?
