Make Your Own: Tomato Curry Lentil Stew

In my on-going quest to expose my family to new and delicious healthy foods, I tested this recipe last week.  Baby A enjoyed this soup immensely---so did we! We had it for a few meals and ate wheat bread with olive oil as a side. Once day, I served a cup with a side salad. The three of us had never had curry and were a little hesitant but I am happy to say we all loved it.

  • 1/2 cup dry lentils
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 ounces stewed tomatoes
  • 1/8 cup chopped onion
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped, with leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
