Violeta Patiño prepared this cinnamon flavored Lentil Atole at our January 19th, 2019 Spanish-language cooking class held at the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in Lisle, Illinois.

Ingredients

 2 cups water
 3 to 4 piloncillo bars
 1 cinnamon stick
 1 cup dried green lentils
 2 cups plant milk
 4 tablespoons rice flour

Instructions

1

In a medium pot, bring water to a boil. Add piloncillo bars, stir until dissolved. Add cinnamon stick. Reduce heat to low. With a spice grinder, grind the lentils to a powder. Slowly add the ground lentils to the pot, stir constantly. Add the plant milk slowly. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Stir in the rice flour. Continue to simmer and stir for about 10 minutes, until the mixture thickens.

2

Ladle into mugs and serve hot.

Note: Piloncillo is a minimally-processed Mexican sugar made from sugar cane juice. It has a unique flavor similar to molasses, with smokey, earthy elements. It comes in cones or bars and can be found in Latin grocers or online.
