Coconut curried lentils

Coconut curried lentils


This week’s coconut curried lentil recipe is for all the vegetarians out there and for all of you who like to include some meat free meals during the week.

Legumes are a great addition to your diet because. They are high in cholesterol lowering fibre, they are low GI and they are full of vitamins, minerals and protein. So let’s pack in some super healthy food before all the holiday madness begins.

I did my lentils in the slow cooker because I love the idea of dumping, leaving everything to do it’s thing and coming back a few hours later to a cooked meal. Also the slow cooker is energy efficient in terms of electricity usage. But please feel free to cook them on the stove if you prefer.

this slow cooker coconut lentil curry recipe is really delicious and has been made many since since the conception of this recipe. I hope that you enjoy the wholesome goodness of this recipe as much as I did.
