Coconut Milk Dal (Coconut Lentil Stew)

Makes: 4 servings

Description: amended from Oh Taste N See A delicious, sweet and hearty vegetarian stew that can be served over rice.

1 cup  lentils
2 cups  broth (or water)
3  carrots, diced
15  cherry tomatoes (halved) or 2 roma tomatoes
1 can  coconut milk (I used Lite)
1/4 cup  cream of coconut (optional)
1 tbsp  curry paste
1  medium onion, chopped

Instructions: Place all the ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer, uncovered for about 30 minutes. (I simmered mine a bit longer because I got distracted on the phone and it just was a thicker consistency, which I actually preferred). You could always add more/additional veggies if you so desired.

I mixed in 1/4 cup Greek yogurt and served mine over jasmine rice.
