Red Lentil Curry

Blair now asks for “Curry”, meaning this dish, all the time. She devoured this. I love watching her try new foods and developing a love for different cuisines. This is such an easy dish to throw together last minute! I adapted this recipe from one I found at RealSimple.


  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 8 green onions sliced and separated (whites and greens keep separate)
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 4 medium carrots
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (I use this)
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • salt and pepper to taste

Serve with naan bread (I have a great recipe here) and lime wedges

Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet and add the garlic, ginger and whites of the green onions. Cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and soft. Stir in the curry powder and cumin.


Add the carrots, potato, lentils, broth, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 15- 20 minutes. (until the vegetables and lentils are tender)


Serve by sprinkling the curry with the green onions and squirting with a lime wedge.
