Curried Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew

This is such a yummy meal, lentils provide alot of protein and when combined with the whole grain rice you then have a complete protein. The chewiness of the rice, earthy sweetness of the sweet potatoes, and the mellow spiciness of the curry is truely a deliciuos combination, served with my special silver spoon from my friend Laurie and it's...perfection.

2 cups cooked green lentils
1 cup cooked wehani rice, or other brown rice variety
2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
2 small sweet potatoes sliced
1 carrot diced
1 celery stalk diced
2-cups chicken broth, low sodium
2 tablespoons yellow curry
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 bay leaves

In a dutch oven heat oil over medium/low heat
add onion, garlic, carrot, celery, saute until onions are translucent.
Add sweet potatoes, cook another 5 minutes.
Add bay leaves, curry powder, chicken broth and rice, cover and cook 30 minutes.
Add lentils, soy sauce, sesame oil and cook another 5-10 minutes. add more broth if too thick.

Adjust seasonings if needed
