Curried Lentils
This recipe is my standard potluck dish for the following reasons: 1.) None of the ingredients for recipe go bad, at least for many months. So I just make sure I never run out of these ingredients, and then when someone invites me to a party or potluck dinner, I always have something to make. 2.) It's vegan, so everyone can eat it, and hearty enough for your vegetarian friends to have something that counts more as a main dish--not just a salad thrown together at the last minute, or spaghetti. 3.) It's fairly easy to remember: cook the lentils in the broth (I always use broth instead of water) until they're softer than they were but not quite done, add the coconut milk and spices, cook until the lentils are soft, serve. Done and done. 4.) It's delicious, and it's always been a hit. In addition to the vegetable broth I usually add yellow raisins (at the very end--I stir them in once everything is done until they're plump) lemon, cayenne pepper, marjoram, garlic powder, and coriander--all to taste. No exact measurements--its hard to really mess up this recipe.
