It's too dark for photos, so you get the recipe. I've been making it for so long I don't remember where the recipe is from.
Curried Lentil Stew
1/2 c chopped onion
2 t. curry powder
2 t vegetable oil
2 1/2 c water
2 c cubed rutabagas, turnips, or parsnips
1 c sliced carrots
1 c dry lentils, rinsed and drained
1/2 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1 9 oz package frozen peas
3 c V8
In a large saucepan cook onion and curry powder in hot oil for 3 min, stirring occasionally. Add water, rutabagas, carrots, lentils, salt, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 15-20 min.
Stir the peas into the soup. Return to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 6-8 min or until vegetables and lentils are tender. Stir in the V8 and heat through.
The original recipe called for frozen green beans, but I prefer peas so I switched it up. I usually leave out the salt because there is so much in v8 extra just seems excessive.
