Simple Lentil Curry


This vegan lentil curry is absolutely amazing. It’s simple, exotic, spicy and creamy with a intense coconut flavor. Don’t forget to eat huge green salad before your dinner! My favorite is cucumber, tomato, leafy greens, sauerkraut and avocado dressing. 


  • 1 cup red lentils 
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped finely
  • 2 cups of tomato sauce
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk
  •  1 tsp ginger, minced
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp yellow curry powder


  1. Cook lentils according to package directions. About 15-30 minutes or until soft, depending on the lentils you use. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan and pour in small splash of water. Add garlic and onion and cook them until fragrant.
  3. Add the tomato sauce, coconut milk and spices and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  4. Pour in cooked lentils, stir and cook for at least 15 minutes over medium heat.
  5. Cook the rice according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  6. Serve the lentils over the basmati rice. You can add some fresh cilantro on top.
