Creamy Lentil Stew Mmmmm

Another GREAT creamy and delicious WOW.
1 cup green lentils
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves
1 small piece of a cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
1 one inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/4 cups tomato, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup raw cashews
2/3 cup water
Cook the lentils in 2 cups water bring to a boil and then simmer for about 40 minutes until tender and all the liquid is absorbed. I add a piece of Kombu (to help the beans not be so gassy :) Heat the oil in a large skiller. Add the onion and cook until caramelized and reddish brown, being careful not to burn.
Add the cloves, cinnamon stick, bay leaf and fry for 2 minutes.
Add the ginger and garlic and cook another 2 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and salt and cook until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the lentils.
Blend the cashews in a blender and slowly add the water until it is all combined and a rich cream. Stir into the lentils.
YUMMY!! Serves 4 or when I'm eating it ONE :)
