really tasty! didn't realize how easy it was to make lentils. personally would have liked more spices but it was still really good. was skeptical of the recipe but it turned out wonderfully and my 2-year old son could help which was fun.

  2. Combine sweet potato, bell pepper, green beans, and raisins in medium bowl. Add oil, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Whisk together broth, ginger, garlic, and curry powder in small bowl.
  4. Divide sweet potato mixture among packets; top with 1/3 cup lentils. Pour 1/4 cup broth mixture over lentils, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Fold ther half of foil over ingredients, and crimp edges in overlapping folds until packets are sealed. Transfer packets to baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes.
