Curried Sweet Potato and Lentil Stew

I am all about expanding horizons especially with food.  So when I came across this recipe for sweet potato and lentil stew from Whole Living magazine (it's one of my favorites!), I knew I could spruce it up a bit to bring it to another level.  Ben is not a fan of the spices cooking because of their pungency, but he loved this stew!
