My children love anything with curry, and are especially fond of the flavors of Morocco. I always ate a lot of curried dishes while pregnant and breastfeeding and then offered them curried dishes by twelve months of age. From these experiences, their taste buds adapted to accept and enjoy these flavors. I like to make this recipe on a busy weeknight and serve it over cooked quinoa for a simple, balanced meal.

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onions diced
4 carrots peeled and diced
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoons ground cardamom
½ teaspoons garam masala
1 pinches cayenne pepper (optional)
2 cups French lentils sorted and rinsed
10 cups chicken bone broth
6 tablespoons tomato paste
4 cups sliced savoy cabbage
2 teaspoons Herbamare (or sea salt)
