I would love to get yummy recipes with lots of lentils/beans, but without a lot of other carbs such as potatoes/rice. :) I`m diabetic, and trying to go back to a vegetarian lifestyle. (I was vegetarian until diagnosed, but found it really, really hard to both watch my carbs AND not eat meat. But I really want to be vegetarian again.)
Soo, here I am, asking for recipes. :) I`m not very familiar with Indian food, but see a lot of stuff that looks really yum. And would love to try. And it looks like there are a lot of Indian recipes with lenitls/beans? But I would love every type of recipe that can be used as a dinner`ish food, with lentils/beans/other high-protein foods.
I also make a fair amount of patties, like chickpeas => falafel or black bean burgers with dill sauce, though I sub shredded zucchini in for the breadcrumbs. That's also a great use for leftover beans!
I also like my version of this Chickpea-veggie salad with yogurt dressing, which is a great recipe for hot weather.
ETA, sorry, didn't notice this is in the veg forum, but hopefully this is still helpful! I'm not vegetarian, but I love the cost and convenience of beans/legumes and hate cooking meat!

I was thinking Indian food immediately too, but don't have any good recipes of my own to share. Sorry! ( We usually try to include lots of carbs for our son.) I know this isn't exactly what you asked for, but wanted to mention that PCRM specifically promotes a vegan diet to diabetics. Check out their resource guide at http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/diabetes_book/index.html which includes many meal suggestions and accompanying recipes at http://www.pcrm.org/health/recipes/. They have some good ones in the Legumes and Hearty Meals category (or something close to that), including some good dahl.
