 		Curried Carrots & Lentils
 		(adapted from _The New Basics_)
 1/2 C dried red lentils
 1-1/2 C water
 3 carrots, peeled & cut into 2" pieces
 1/2 C chopped onion
 1/4 C golden raisins
 1/2 tsp salt
 3/4 tsp curry powder 
 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
 black pepper, to taste
 (I'd normally dry-roast the curry & fennel ahead of time,  
 but that would take away from the ease of the dish)
 Combine lentils & 1/2 C water in a 2-qt microwave-safe  
 casserole.  Nuke at full power, covered, for 5 minutes.   
 (If water foams and spills over, add 1-2 Tb more water.)
 Stir in carrots & another 1/2 C water; cover, and nuke for  
 5 minutes.
 Stir in 1/2 C water and all the remaining ingredients;  
 cover, & nuke for 5 minutes.  Serve.  (Intended for 650-700  
 watt microwave; cook longer if yours is less powerful.)
