Low Fat Lemony Lentils with Pumpkin

Low-Fat Lemony Lentils with Pumpkin

A great low-fat side dish, the pumpkin and lemon juice add layers of flavor to often bland lentils. This is a great fall side to serve with fish or use as a vegetarian main course.

Ingredients
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (3/4 cup)
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 3 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 3/4 pound pumpkin, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup scallions, sliced
Instructions

1. In a large saucepan add the onions, lentils, and broth. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and cover the pan. Simmer the lentils, stirring them occasionally, for 30 minutes.

2. Add the pumpkin, lemon juice, parsley, ginger, salt, pepper, and cumin, stirring to combine the ingredients well.

3. Cover the pan and cook the mixture until pumpkin is tender (about 20-25 minutes). Before serving, toss the mixture with the scallions.
