Some weeks are just so busy. That usually means it’s time for me to start making dinner in the slow cooker. These Creamy Indian Lentils and Kidney Beans are one of my favorite dishes and one of my first choices when I can’t find a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

This dish is so easy to make. You just throw in most of the ingredients in your 3 1/2 or 4-quart slow cooker and you can go to work while it cooks for 8 to 9 hours on low. When you get home, just stir in a few things and it’s ready to serve.

If you’re serious about making dinner as easy as possible, you can use a rice cooker with a timer or an Instant Pot to cook the rice. Then everything is ready when you walk in the door.

  • chopped cilantro, for garnish

Instructions
