I’ve kind of had a fling with lentils lately. These guys, this one, and now the Red Curry Lentils? I can barely stand it. Cheap, healthy, versatile, and absolutely delicious. Do they have lentils in the Philippines? Please Lord.
Not sure if you like lentils? Well, you do. Today you are going to love lentils.
Just cook your lentils and toss them in up this spicy red curry sauce with sauteed onions and a shot of coconut milk. OH MY PERFECTLY SPICY GOODNESS. Spread ’em on soft warm garlic naan, eat ’em straight up cold out of the fridge, stir ’em up into a big bowl of rice, or shovel ’em into your face. And your spouse’s face, and your kids face, and your face again.
See? You love ’em.
