Pimp my lentils, Member morganalefaye

This is a good basic recipe that gets better when you add and play with it. I took the other reviewer's suggestion and along with the stock (mine was made from vegi bouillon powder) added coconut milk which gave it a wonderful creamy taste and texture. This recipe definately needed the extra liquid so don't be scared of putting in more than suggested. I also added more curry powder since I'm used to eating my dishes hot. Instead of spinach I used Kale. Everything turned out great.
