This recipe really is super quick to make, I always have a pack of puy lentils in my cupboard for quick meals like this and this recipe is naturally nut free if you use the tahini option (this is ground sesame seed paste, it’s like the seed version of nut butter) which you can find in the world food section of the supermarket or at health stores but you can always just use almond butter if you aren’t allergic to nuts.
Furthermore, this meal counts as 2/5 a day with barely any effort, hooray for lazy girl cooking!
If you aren’t making this for two people then the second portion makes a great lunch for the next day too.
Let me know what kind of curry combos you guys use if you try it.
Recipe (2 portions)
1 pack microwaveable puy lentils
2 medium carrots, grated
2 heaped Tbsp light tahini (can sub almond butter)
1 & 1/2 to 2 small tsp curry powder (use your favourite, adjust to your taste)
Splash of boiling water to thin sauce to desired consistency
Simply cook the lentils according to pack instructions, while they cook, grate the carrots and make the sauce then pour it over the lentils and carrots. The second portion also makes a great lunch the next day and is tupperware friendly.
