Meatless Monday~ green lentil and veggie curry


1 yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 T red/green curry paste
1 tsp turmeric
1 cup green lentils
5 cups veggie stock or water
2 carrots, chopped
2 sweet potatoes, diced
1/2 cauliflower, broken into florets
Handful of green beans
Basil and hot peppers to serve on top

Heat oil in large sauce pan or pot and add onion and garlic.  Saute until softened.  Add turmeric and curry.  Stir for 1 minute.  Add lentils and stock.

Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cover for 30 minutes.  Add carrots and potatoes, cook covered for another 20 minutes.

Add cauliflower and beans, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until most liquid has been absorbed.

Top with basil and hot peppers.


If you like a little spice in your meals, this is great.  Serve on top of rice for extra carbs or add chicken if you need extra protein.
