A great main dish that is just as good as leftovers!

"Added carrots, celery, and a green pepper. + extra water for the added ingredients. Yum."


1 cup Lentils
3 cups Broth
2 large Onions; chopped fine, divided
Salt; to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons Garlic; minced
1 teaspoon Curry powder
1 cup Rice; (brown or white, prepared according to package directions)

Original recipe makes 4



In medium saucepan, combine the lentils, broth, half the onions, and the salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover pan, and simmer the lentils until they are tender, about 30 to 40 mins. Drain the lentils.

While lentils are cooking, heat the oil in a skillet, add the remaining onions and garlic, and saute until the vegetables begin to brown. Add them to the cooked lentils, along with the curry and the cooked rice, mixing well. Heat verything through evenly, and serve.
