The original recipe calls for raisins, which I can't stand, I substituted apples. I use a firm apple like a granny smith so it doesn't break down while cooking. Make sure it's not a mealy apple, and make sure you peel it! Otherwise use raisins (yucky lol)

Recipe Ingredients for butternut lentil curry

1 Onion, medium sized, diced
1 Red Pepper (Bell or Italian), diced
4 cups butternut squash, cubed
1 cup apple, chopped
2/3 cup Walnut Pieces
1 lb. Lentils
2 tbsp. Curry Powder
1 tsp. Cinnamon, ground
1 cayenne to taste

Recipe Directions for butternut lentil curry

  1. On the stovetop bring to boil 5 cups of water in a saucepot with cover. Check lentils for, and discard any, extraneous matter (small stones, etc.). Rinse lentils and add to boiling water. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook lentils until soft (the water should all be absorbed).

  2. While the lentils are cooking, peel, wash, and dice onion and apple. Wash, remove seeds and stem from red pepper, and dice. Wash, remove stem, and peel the butternut squash with a sturdy vegetable peeler. Split the butternut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. (You may want to save the seeds for roasting later.) Cut each squash half into inch slices and then cut each slice into inch cubes.

  3. Place onions, squash and red pepper in a frypan with a small amount of water and cook until starting to get tender. Add apples, walnuts, curry powder and cinnamon, and cayenne to taste (ar a dash of hot sauce) mix, cover, and cook until tender. Serve with a tossed salad :-)
