Green Bean & Lentil Curry

I have a receipt for you all, but it’s trapped in a different bag.  Will be updating that later today.  I give you, however, some Green Bean and Lentil Curry – a spicy and warm dish for cool nights.

Green Bean & Lentil Curry

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 3-4 tablespoons spicy curry powder
  • 2 cups cooked lentils
  • about 1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut to inch-long pieces
  • cooked brown basmati rice

To Do:

  1. Heat up the oil or butter in a large pot.  Add the onions and cook until softened – 5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook for another minute or two.
  2. Add the curry powder (start with 2 tablespoons and add more to taste later) and stir vigorously.  Pour in the broth and bring to a simmer.
  3. Add the green beans and cook, covered, for about 15 minutes.  Taste and add salt and more curry powder if desired.  Stir in the lentils and gently heat through.
  4. Serve over brown basmati rice.
