Plant Based Comfort Food: Vegetable Lentil Curry

This dish is the perfect hearty plant-based meal! Filled with vegetables, legumes, and spices that create an explosion on your taste buds. Made with love and creativity for an all around satisfying bowl of goodness!


Perfect for dinner or lunch as this meal is VERY filling. For an even heavier dish feel free to add rice on the side!

I made this curry on a snowy winter night, made a cup of tea, and snuggled up in my warm covers with a sappy romance movie. Plant based goodness. All though food is not meant for the comfort of our emotions, a hearty and delicious meal (especially when it’s plant-based) can bring healing vibes.
