  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • For the Salad:

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 carrots (peeled and julienned)
  • 4 cups baby spinach (roughly chopped 1/2 cup mint leaves, roughly chopped 1/2 cup shaved ricotta salata cheese)

Instructions

  1. In a medium sauce pan combine the lentils, water, cumin, coriander, and salt. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
