Simple soothing lentils can take twenty minutes of your time and you can reap the rewards as a meal base perfect for a poached egg (and a drizzle of toasted sesame oil).  Good digestion rules and this will surely support.

Another straightforward recipe with my miso of the moment. 


2/3 cup Red Lentils, (washed and soaked in water for as little as 15 minutes or as much as 4 hours)

1 2/3 cups Water

1 Tbsp Miso Paste

1/3 cup Pumpkin Puree

1/2 tsp Turmeric

pinch Cardamom 

pinch Black Pepper

1 to 2 Pasture Raised Eggs

Toasted Sesame Oil


1.  Combine soaked lentils with water, miso, turmeric, pumpkin cardamom and black pepper.

2. Bring to a simmer for 20 minutes until soft.

3. Season with a squeeze of lemon as needed.

4. In a small saucepan bring water to a simmer and add a tsp of vinegar.

5. Reduce heat to just below a simmer and carefully drop in an egg.

6. Allow to poach for about 4 minutes until the white is firm and encases the yolk while remaining runny.

7. Serve the egg on top of the lentils with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil.
