Sweet Potato, Red Pepper & Lentil Curry
Although I’m not vegetarian, I enjoy a few meat free days each week and I’m always looking for new ways to ring the changes. Reducing refined carbs has also been on our food agenda and that’s certainly been much easier to do by increasing the amount of vegetables in our diets. I’ve also bought an electric spiralizer and although gadgets have never been quite my thing, I see it as another way to get those extra veggies in.
Roasted cauliflower has become a firm favourite, both as roasted florets and also cauliflower rice. Sweet potatoes and peppers rank high amongst my favourite vegetables too and were the inspiration behind this curry.
If your family like a midweeek meat free dish then this sweet potato and red pepper and lentil curry is a healthy alternative. The lentils add protein and also bulk out the dish. I used a mix of green and red lentils but use whatever your have to hand.
I served with roasted cauliflower but it will be just as good with rice or nan bread.
Herbs and spices play a huge part in my everyday cooking and I find that when cooking vegetarian food they really come into their own. We love eating different types of cuisines and I find that so easy when it comes to vegetarian dishes. Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Asian, Spanish and Mediterranean flavours all work so well with vegetables and pulses.
