  • Stovetop


  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 cans tomato paste 6 oz each
  • 8 cups low-sodium vegetable broth we use Better Than Bouillon
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 3 cups green lentils dry, uncooked
  • 2 bags frozen mixed vegetables 500g each
  • ½ cup cashews optional, for topping
  • cilantro optional, chopped, for topping


  • In a large saucepan sauté the garlic with a little water to keep it from sticking, for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the curry powder and tomato paste and stir well. Then add the broth, coconut milk and stir well to mix.
  • Add in the lentils and bring to a boil. Then cover and reduce heat to a simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Once the lentils are cooked, add in the frozen veggies and cook a few minutes longer until heated through.
  • Top with cilantro and cashews. Enjoy!


Serving suggestion: Serve with a side of brown rice.
