Curried Carrots and Lentils

  • 1/2 c. dried lentils (red or brown)
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 3 carrots, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 1/4 c. raisins
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 t salt
  • 3/4 t. curry powder

Combine the lentils and about 1 c of the water in a saucepan, cover and simmer, until the lentils are just cooked. Add the carrots, the rest of the water and all of the other ingredients. Cook until done. Might need to add a bit more water. (The directions for this are actually for a microwave, so I do it on the stove and if the truth be known, I’m not  very good about measuring carefully.)
