Lentil Curry

A beautifully warming mild curry with lentils, cauliflower and sweet potato


I love curry, it's the perfect meal for throwing in spices and is a great one for padding out with lots of veggies. This one is really quick and easy to make and it's dairy and gluten free for those who struggle with either of those food groups.



Lentils are high in B vitamins as well as minerals such as iron, potassium and zinc. They are also a great source of protein and packed full of fibre





Although my kids don't like chilli I can't get enough of it! So if like me you prefer a bit of spice with your curry then add in some chilli flakes when cooking, or slice some fresh chilli to pop on top at the end.
