Red Lentil Dal
Dals are essentially thick stews made with lentils and traditional Indian spices. On my web site, this is one of my most popular recipes. It’s been around the online block a few times and for good reason. It’s easy, delicious, and cheap. Make it once and it will never leave your regular rotation, I promise.

Lentils with Smoked Pork
This is another elemental stew that makes a hearty lunch on a rainy day. Serve it in large bowls with a salad of bitter greens in light vinaigrette. Lentils are drought resistant, which make them a good crop for hot summers with sparse rainfall which we often experience here in the Upper Midwest.  Our lentils, which come in various colors, sizes and flavor profiles, are from Chieftain Wild Rice Company in Spooner, Wisconsin. Because they are a pulse, or a grain legume, they lend themselves well to crop rotation since they actively fix nitrogen to the soil during the growing season.  Consequently, lentils are one cover crop that can also be harvested for profit by regional farmers. This recipe is courtesy of Heartland: Farm-Forward Dishes from the Great Midwest cookbook by Lenny Russo and Burgess Lea Press.
