Warm Spiced Lentil Bowl with Yogurt and Smoked Almonds
Thicker than a soup, this lentil dish makes a hearty one-bowl meal.
1. Heat oil in large saucepan over low heat. Add cumin seeds, and cook 1 minute, or until fragrant. Stir in carrot, celery, and leek. Increase heat to medium-high, and sauté 3 minutes. Stir in broth and lentils. Bring mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook 20 minutes, or until lentils are tender. Stir in garlic, and cook 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
2. Ladle lentil mixture into 4 bowls, and garnish with almonds and yogurt.
