This lentil curry with coconut milk and vegetables is special. You’ll throw this vegan dinner so quickly together, you wouldn’t even notice you’re cooking. This curry is vegan, gluten-free, high-fiber and antioxidant-rich.
The first time I made this vegan curry, I thought. That’s it. This is my meal. It’s like a Thai curry, but with lentils. I love it. It’s super addictive.
So be careful. Share with others only if you really have to. Say, in emergencies. And what is an emergency for me?
If a bear got out of the zoo, ate my neighbours and I’m next. Yes, in this case, I will share the curry with that bear. And then she will be happy and will go peacefully. Of course, armed with the recipe for this lentil coconut curry.
HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS
Besides being delicious and one of my favorite winter meals of all times, this lentil curry is a good treat for your health and your beauty.
- Let me just say lentils. They’re high in fiber and in protein – a perfect food for an athletic person (which sometimes I am). They lower cholesterol and contain a number of minerals like Zinc and Iron, which are important for hair and nail strength and a healthy skin.
- Then let’s talk about broccoli, that has been cooked for a maximum of 2 minutes here. Well, they’re known to activate detoxifying enzymes in the liver, so they are actually good for detoxification and protect from cancer and other chronic diseases.
- Fresh peppers, just like broccoli, are loaded with Vitamin C, important for the production of collagen – the protein that holds the skin together. No Vitamin C – no skin elasticity, my friends!
- Carrot, like red peppers, is bursting with carotenoids, those tiny little antioxidants, that prevent cancer, skin damage, cardiovascular diseases and just do miracles for our health, fighting those free radical bastards.
And that’s just to mention a few. Seriously do yourself a big favor and make this lentil coconut curry.
