Creamy lentils and spinach curry (vegan)
One more very cool lentil recipe on the blog! I already got a coconut milk lentil soup recipe but here is a very creamy curry. Full of delicious spices, a few spinach and some creamy coconut milk. During Winter, I usually go for canned tomatoes and in the summer I use fresh ones! Serve it over rice and you got a very satisfying and complete meal.
One more vegan recipe because it is important for the whole world to see that vegan cuisine is not tasteless steamed veggies, it's more than that, it's delicious and full of flavors. I like doing curries with various legumes, it's delicious and it can be kept a good 3 days in the fridge with no problem.
