Easy, Lentil Coconut Curry

I made this recipe up one day out of the contents of my cupboard. It's extremely tasty plus seems to fill my void for delicious Indian curry! It's also received rave reviews from family and friends so I end up making it a lot! Serve over brown or jasmine rice and enjoy!

4 cups liquid, as in water or stock
2 large carrots, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
4 large potatoes, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup of frozen peas
1 can of stewed tomatoes
1 can coconut milk
1 cup dried green lentils

2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 teaspoons flavored bouillon, as in chicken or veggie
2 heaping tablespoons Yellow Curry seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil

*If you have a strong, flavorful stock then omit the bouillon (depending on how you feel about msg)

In a large pot, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until soft.
Throw everything else in and stir til blended.
Bring to a rolling boil then let simmer for 45-60 minutes, until lentils and potaters are soft. Serve over brown or jasmine rice.

Bon Appetit!
