Easy Curried Lentil Stew

Ingredients
1 chopped onion
1 glove garlic
tbs finely chopped fresh ginger
1 chopped carrot
1 chopped sweet potato
1 cup chopped cauliflower
1/2 chopped zucchini
2 yellow squash, quartered
Vege stock (enough to cover vege and lentil mixture)
Curry powder to taste
100g dried lentils (not tinned - you need dried to absorb the liquid in the recipe)

Method
- Add onion, garlic and ginger into saucepan with a little oil and lightly fru until fragrant
- Add the rest of the chopped veges and saute until just softened
- Add about a teaspoon of the curry powder - just enough to coat the veges
- Add enough stock to cover the veges and add the dried lentils
- Put saucepan on heat and simmer until most of the liquid has been absorbed. You may need to remove thelid from the saucepan, turn up the heat and let some of the liquid evaporate if its too runny (or you could eat it as it is cos it would be lentil soup instead of stew)
- Serve with steamed veggies, brown rice or wholegrain bread.
