Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 tbls olive oil
    1 yellow onion, chopped
    1 carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
    1 celery stalk thinly sliced
    1 clove garlic minced
    1 bay leaf
    1 teaspoon curry powder

    11/2 cups dried brown, rinsed and drained
    6 cups vegetable broth
    1 lemon slice

Tips

You can use Chicken or beef broth if you do not want to be vegetarian.


Directions

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add onion, celery, carrot, garlic, and bay leaf and saute until the vegetables are softened, about 5 mins. Stir in the curry powder and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the tomatoes and their juice, lentils, stock, and lemon slice. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover partially, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. Discard the lemon slice and bay leaf.

Just before serving, stir in the spinach, reduce the heat to low, and simmer until the spinach is wilted but still bright green. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
