It did not disappoint. Flavorful and simple and the boys loved it. I loved it, because, add a salad and some hearty bread and it's a fill-you-up meal!
It is very similar to the lentil soup, just with the addition of sweet potatoes and green beans, so if you know you liked that soup, you'll love this one!
Also, I froze half to eat later. I can't wait.
Lentil Sweet Potato Stew

- 1 med onion, chopped
- 1 cup carrots, chopped
- 1 cup celery, sliced
- 1 t minced garlic
- 2 t curry

- 4 c vegetable broth + 4 c water
- 4-5 cups cubed sweet potatoes (1/2 in cubes)
- 1, 9oz pkg, frozen cut green beans

- 1 T dry cilantro
-- Add lentils and liquids. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
