Lentil-Stuffed Peppers
Yield: 4-5 servings

2/3 c red lentils
4 tbsp vegetable oil
4 med green bell peppers
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 onions, chopped
2 or more green chiles
1-inch piece ginger, grated
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 1/4 c water
salt and pepper
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
diced tomatoes, optional

Rinse lentils and soak for 30 minutes. Heat half oil in skillet.
Add peppers and cook for 3 to 5 minutes till golden brown. Drain
and cool. Add remaining oil to pan. Cook cumin till they begin
to pop. Add onions and chiles and cook for 8 minutes. Stir in
ginger and coriander. Drain lentils and add to the pan with water.
Stir well and cover. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes til lthe liquid
has evaporated.

Stir in salt and pepper. Add cilantro. Cut tops off peppers and
remove seeds. Stuff with the lentils and replace the tops. Stand
in a baking dish. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes.

Note: I like to use 5 peppers, not 4, and either mix some diced
canned tomatoes into the filling or leave a bit of room in each
and add a layer of tomatoes.
