Curried Lentil Stew

Found this one here. I’m calling it stew instead of soup because almost ALL the liquid cooked off. I also made a couple of small adjustments.

1 tablespoon oil
1 cup chopped onion
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons curry powder
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
3 cups water
1 can stewed chopped tomatoes
2 cups lentils, uncooked and well rinsed
11/2 cup carrots, finely chopped
1/2 cup red wine (optional – we didn’t use it and it still tastes great)
1 cup parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste (I don’t think you need to add the salt if you’re using prepared broth)

In large saucepan, heat oil; sauté onion and garlic until soft. Stir in curry powder; sauté 1 minute. Add broth, water, tomatoes, lentils, carrots and wine. Simmer, uncovered until lentils are cooked, about 45 minutes.

Stir in parsley; simmer 5 minutes.

What's your take on it?
