Asparagus Lentils Salad | Salad Recipes

This is a warm and comforting salad for a cozy meal. I just love my meals simple and nutritious. But with a picky eater (well I am not talking about my son) and a toddler it is almost difficult to make something which is one dish for all. But whenever I can (read as whenever I find some extra time in the kitchen) I sneak in these dishes as a part of my regular lunch menu. This is a perfect dish for side or if you are thinking of eating light, just top it with a little yogurt and you are all set for a yummy lunch.
Serves - 2
Asparagus - 1/2 a bundle - chopped
Dry Brown Lentils - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Curry powder - 1/2 tsp
Pepper - to taste
Salt - to taste
Cilantro - a handful

Pick over and soak the lentils in water for about 15 minutes. Take the lentils in a saucepan covered with water. Bring it to a boil and simmer until the lentils are cooked al-dente, about 10 minutes and drain. Heat a wide pan with oil and saute the asparagus for about 2-3 minutes. Add the curry powder and the cooked lentils. Mix well and remove from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with cilantro. Serve as a side.
