Curried Lentils With Spinach

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chef MB

From Nava Atlas, "Vegetariana" Pretty tasty, very easy. Needs a little something. I thought it would be good with shrimp in it, Joe (DH) suggested some heat (hot bean paste?). Maybe cubes of butternut squash? If anyone comes up with something fabulous, please share!

This was worth making. It's more of a subtle flavored dish. I did add a cup of minced onion and sauted it with the garlic. I also doubled all the spices but the curry which I only added one more teaspoon to. Also, my tomatoes had basil in them. Thanks for the recipe! I'm sure I'll make this again sometime.
