For the cabbage and spinach: Heat Earth Balance in a dutch oven and add 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, allow the seeds to pop. Then add 1 diced onion with 2 garlic cloves and saute 1-2 minutes. Add ginger, cumin, and turmeric. Add 2 cups cabbage and 2 cups spinach. Cover and cook on medium-low for 1 hour until soft. Do not add water.
For the lentils: Saute 1 diced onion with 3-4 garlic cloves and 1 inch of chopped fresh ginger. Add 1 TBL paprika, 1 TBL cayenne, and 1/2 tsp turmeric. Add 2 cups red lentils, 6 cups water, and 1 faux chicken bullion. Bring to a boil, the cook covered on medium until lentils are soft. Uncover slightly and allow lentils to thicken about 30 minutes. Add salt to taste.
Serve with potato-cado salad.
This picture sucks, which is the main reason I didn’t give this dish its own post. Sorry about that.
Chop 4 yukon gold potatoes and boil 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse in cold water.
While the potatoes cook, chop 4 TBL fresh cilantro, 1/2 cup white onion, and 1 ripe avocado. Pour 2 TBL lemon juice and 2 TBL white vinegar into a small bowl and season generously with salt and pepper. Add onion and cilantro and mix well.
When the potatoes are done, mix them together with the avocado and salad dressing. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
