Need some more dinner inspiration?! I got you covered once again with a batch of this humble vegan potato lentil curry! Yummo in the kitchen!
Don’t you just love curries? They can be so quick and easy to whip up for your dinner and they are also full of flavour! I always used to think curries were just too difficult to make, time consuming, lots of prep time and don’t they have to simmer on the stove top for like, 1 hour?! Ok ok, this curry is none of those things my friends, this is all prepared in one pot (except for the rice of course) but I have a feeling you’re going to enjoy this curry recipe!
Have you tried brown rice with curry before? I’m just loving brown rice at the moment, in fried rice especially and it also works wonderfully with this curry. It does take a little longer to cook but trust me, it’s worth it!! You just have to put it on the stove 10-15 minutes longer than you usually would cook your white rice, that simple!
This curry is sort of similar to an Indian Dal but it’s more like a curry, know what I mean? Haha, I’m confusing you! This curry is so hearty and humble though and it makes for the best leftovers the next day for your lunch or for your dinner. I enjoyed this meal again for dinner the next day and all I did was heated it up on the stove. It does turned a little thicker but thats ok, it actually filled me up for longer.
What’s one of your favourite go-to easy dinners? Mine is of course a curry and pretty much all veggie meals that can me prepared and made in one pot but I’m guessing most of you would probably agree with me on that one?! Enjoy!
