Curried lentils with a little heat and collagen peptides


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 1 medium onion 
  • 3 medium carrots (1/2 lb.) 
  • 1 cup uncooked brown lentils 
  • 2 Tbsp curry powder hot or mild 
  • 3 red fresh red chillies or 1 teaspoon dried red chillies
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce* 
  • Salt to taste 
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro (optional) 
  • 4 scoops collagen peptides


  • Spread the lentils out on a baking sheet to make them easier to see. Pick out any stones or debris. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a sauce pot, then add the lentils. Allow the pot to come back up to a boil, then turn the heat to low, place a lid on top, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. Drain the cooked lentils in a colander.
  • Meanwhile, mince the garlic and finely dice the onion and carrots. Sauté the onion, garlic, and carrots in a large skillet with olive oil over medium heat until the onions are transparent (about 5 minutes). Add the curry powder and chillies and sauté for one minute more.
  • Add the cooked and drained lentils to the skillet, along with the tomato sauce. Stir and heat through (about 5 minutes). Turn the heat off, taste the lentils, and add salt if needed (I added about 1/2 tsp).
  • Mix in the collagen peptides and top with fresh cilantro and serve over a bed of rice.
