In a medium-size pot, add the lentils and enough water to cover. Add the bay leaf and onion halves, bring up to a boil, cover, and turn down to medium-low. Simmer until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time, when the lentils have been simmering for about 8-10 minutes, add the diced potatoes to the pot. When both the lentils and potatoes are tender, drain and reserve.
While the lentils are cooking, add 1/2 cup of vegetable stock or water, baby spinach, cilantro and mint to the bowl of a food process and pulse into a paste. Turn out into a large bowl and reserve.
In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1 turn of the pan of vegetable oil or EVOO. Add the shallots, carrot and bell pepper, and cook until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in green peas, season with salt and ground black pepper, and turn off the heat.
Whisk 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or EVOO into the reserved spinach puree. Add the cooked shallots and veggies to the bowl along with the cooked lentils and potatoes. Give everything a good toss to coat and check the seasoning.
Serve warm or chilled alongside Crispy Curry Fried Chicken.
