I am completely addicted to the spicy lentil stew I made a few weeks back. Turns out, it's even good for breakfast. And, it was one of the only things that made my head feel better during a recent cold/sinus infection.
The original recipe calls for four tablespoons of butter; two tablespoons of canola (or other vegetable) oil make a good substitute.
(Yes, the stew looks completely different in this photo than it did in the original post -- what can I say? -- the first photo was shabby.)
