Vegetarian Recipes from Aunt Betty Jean

Aunt Betty Jean's kitchen always smells like no other place on earth. A combination of heavenly hash and devil's food makes her kitchen THE place to go and take a load off.......but only if you have time to exercise - a lot - afterwards.

Aunt Betty also prepares vegetarian dishes and wants to share some of her best recipes here.

Her column is updated every day or thereabouts, so check back to see what Aunt Betty's stirring up.

Daal (Egg and Dairy Free)

There are several variations of daal -- this one is quite easy to make and adds a twist--broccoli.

6 cups of water
8 ounces of yellow split peas
1/2 teaspoon of curry powder
3 teaspoons of oil
1/2 cup chopped broccoli
6 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1/2 teaspoon of geera
Salt to taste
Combine the split peas, water, broccoli, 1 teaspoon of oil, salt, and curry powder in a pressure cooker.
Pressure-cook for 7 to 8 minutes.

In a skillet, heat the remaining oil.
Then add the geera and the garlic, and cook until the geera is browned.
Add this to the split-peas mixture, and let simmer for 4 to 6 minutes or until the desired thickness is achieved.
