Preparation Instructions

Put chopped vegetables and seasonings, up to bay leaves, into olive oil in large pot. Allow to cook for several minutes on medium heat. Reduce to low heat, continue to cook (covered) for 20 minutes or so until vegetables reduce.

Add Lake Shore Drive Seasoning, Sweet Curry, wine and tomatoes; increase heat for 10 minutes or so, until wine reduces. Add lentils, stock, 1 ½ cups water, and potatoes; let simmer on low heat, covered, for about 40 minutes, adding ½ cup water every 15 minutes, or as lentils absorb water.

Finish off with additional enrichment of olive oil.
