Stewed lentils and tomatoes

This recipe is from Barefoot Contessa at Home. I think it was intended to be a side dish, but I served it as a main course. The dish starts with carrots, onions and garlic sauteed in a little olive oil. Chicken stock, canned tomatoes, fresh thyme, curry powder, salt and pepper are added to the vegetables and the liquid is brought to a boil. Next, the lentils are added and simmered for about 30-40 minutes. This was a very healthy dish, and it had a nice flavor. I think we both agreed that it was a little heavy on the tomatoes. Next time, I'll use a 14 ounce can instead of a 28 ounce can.
