Lentil curry with rice

Vegan lentil curry with rice | The Nordic Kitchen

A couple of months ago I started to crave curry like crazy. I don’t know why it happened, but it did. We didn’t even have curry at home at that time. But I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I started to create new recipes in my head. When I had finally bought some curry spices I decided to make a lentil stew, season it with curry and serve it with rice and broccoli. We had some red bell peppers at home so I decided to toss that into the mix as well. I don’t want to brag, but this dish turned out so good that we ate it three times that week. 

Since then, we’ve eaten curry lentil stew with rice at least once a week and it has become one of our favorite weekday dinners. It has taken me quite some time to photograph it, but on the other hand I’ve had a lot of time to perfect the recipe during this time. So, if you like curry, I hope you’ll love this recipe!
