To make today’s Meat Free Monday Recipe Red Lentil Curry couldn’t be easier.
It might seem at first glance as though there are a lot of ingredients but I promise you once you have done a bit of peeling and chopping then the actual cooking of the dish is super simple.
To make our Red Lentil Curry:
Heat the coconut and garlic oils in a large heavy-based pot over a medium-high heat. Add the chopped carrot and sweet potato and cook for about 5 minutes until just beginning to soften. Next add the butternut squash, the lentils, the coconut milk, tomatoes, stock and spices. Mix thoroughly and turn down the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook on this low heat for about 20 minutes, giving the occasional stir. Then add the chopped scallion tops and take off the heat. Leave to one side until you are ready to serve.
I served my Red Lentil Curry with some Coconut Rice and Chopped Hazelnuts and Toasted Coconut.

(IF YOU ARE NOT FOLLOWING A FODMAP PLAN THEN YOU CAN SIMPLY REPLACE THE GARLIC OIL WITH A CLOVE OF CRUSHED GARLIC AND THE SCALLION TOPS WITH A MEDIUM BROWN ONION BOTH OF WHICH YOU WOULD ADD AT THE BEGINNING OF THE COOKING WITH THE CARROT.)
