The Best Chocolate Cake Ever
That’s what it was called on the website where I…
This was another dinner request from Lindsay…what’s funny is that we couldn’t remember what the recipe was, where I had found it, or when we had eaten it, but we both remembered the sauce. Garlicky and super-flavorful, this sauce is great spooned over anything…not just these burritos. We spooned it over the burritos and some steamed broccoli the first night, used it as a salad dressing the second night, and spread it on falafel sandwiches the third night.
I finally located the recipe in an old issue of Cuisine at Home. I changed it quite a bit, and the recipe that follows is my version.
Curried Lentil Burritos
Saute onion, curry powder, and jalapeno in oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until onion begins to brown, 5 to 8 minutes, stirring often. Stir in broth, tomatoes, potatoes, lentils, and bay leaves. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until lentils are tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Add spinach and stir until wilted; add lime juice and salt.
Heat the tortillas in a nonstick pan, in the oven, or over the flame until soft and pliable. Fill with lentil mixture and spiced yogurt.
Cilantro Scallion-Spiced Yogurt
Process all ingredients except yogurt in a food processor until minced. Stir herb paste into yogurt; chill until ready to serve.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
