- Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until translucent, about 3 minutes. Mix in mushrooms, carrots, and garlic; cook until flavors combine, about 2 minutes.
- Stir vegetable broth, water, lentils, quinoa, tomato paste, curry powder, chili powder, cumin, ginger, cayenne pepper, garam masala, turmeric, salt, and pepper into the saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover; let simmer until vegetables are cooked through, about 40 minutes.
- Stir butter and cream into the saucepan. Replace the lid and cook until the lentils are tender, about 5 minutes.
- Cook's Notes:
- Cooking oil can be substituted for olive oil; other types of lentils can be substituted for dry green lentils; heavy whipping cream can be substituted for milk, if desired.
- Garam masala can be found at your local ethnic grocery store or in some large chain grocery stores.
- Omit butter and cream to make it vegan-- will still taste great.

My whole family loved this...even the most finicky eater. So many wonderful flavors! Thank you for the recipe.
I thought this was great. I used brown lentils because that is what I had, and didn't add all the spice because my husband does not eat spicy food, but we both really enjoyed the flavors.
