Green Lentil & Vegetable Curry

This recipe from Fitness Foods combined a bunch of tasty veggies, two kinds of potatoes, and savory sauce to make a really tasty, filling meal. We decided next time we make this we’ll use our spicier red curry, as the green curry we went with wasn’t quite as hot as we would have liked.

Green Lentil & Vegetable Curry
1 tsp canola oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1-2 tbsp curry paste
1 tsp turmeric
1 cup green lentils, rinsed and drained
5 cups vegetable broth
1 large carrot, cut into cubes
2 potatoes, cut into cubes
9 oz sweet potato, cut into cubes
12 oz cauliflower florets
5 1/2 oz green beans, trimmed and halved

Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the curry paste and turmeric and stir for 1 minute. Add the lentils and broth.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, then add the carrot, potatoes, and sweet potato. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until the lentils and vegetables are tender.
Add the cauliflower and beans, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the cauliflower and beans are cooked and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Remove the lid and simmer for a further few minutes if there is too much liquid. Serve hot with brown or basmati rice and top with basil and cilantro.

4 Servings.
