This is soooo good. Must have the avocado relish added in... the best!

1/2 tsp salt + to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric in powder form 1 medium bell pepper seeded and chopped 1/2 cup chopped celery 1/2 cup chopped tomato 1/2 tsp curry powder 1/2 tsp lime juice
For avocado salsa on top,
1/2 avocado in .5 inch cubes 1/2 cup finely diced tomatoes 1/2 tsp finely chopped cilantro 1/2 tsp lime juice 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
To prepare,
Lentils, salt, turmeric and 2 cups water in pan. Cook uncovered over medium heat [presume a simmer] for 25-30 minutes. Add rest except lime and cook 10 minutes more. Add lime just before serving.
For salsa- combine ingredients all together to consistency desired and serve cold over stew.
