Lentil & Broccoli Curry with Coconut Milk

Our dietitians love lentils. Not only are they a great high fibre source of vegetarian protein, but they're inexpensive and real convenient.  

This recipe from Lentils.org requires very little prep and comes together in 30 minutes. Pro tip: Green Lentils double in volume when cooked, so you'll need 1 cup dry for this recipe. Try it for dinner tonight! 

To make this Lentil and Broccoli Curry Recipe, you'll start by sauteing the onion in oil until translucent, then add in curry paste, followed by coconut milk and additional water. You'll then add lentils and simmer for about 10 minutes before adding broccoli. Lastly, you'll stir in lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Yum! 

What you'll Need: 
  • 2 tbsp canola oil

  • 1 onion

  • 1 tbsp red curry paste

  • 1 (14oz) can coconut milk

  • 2 cups cooked green lentils

  • 4 cups broccoli florets

  • 1 lime

  • 1 pinch sugar

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • 2 cups cooked rice
