Geoff’s Red Lentil Tikka Masala

(This recipe was arrived at after many attempts to make a vegetarian version of Chicken Tikka Masala. We love the flavor, but wanted to avoid the dairy and have something a bit lighter to eat that was high in protein.)

1 3/4 cups red lentils

7 cups water

2 med onions cut into 8ths

2 Tbsp coconut oil

Put into a pot and bring up to a boil for 15-20 minutes. To this add:

28 ounces crushed tomatoes

1 stick of butter, or 8 tablespoons of ghee

1 tbsp celtic sea salt

2 tbsp Garam Masala

Mix together and puree with a hand blender. Serve over rice or quinoa. YUM!
