Vegetarian Red Lentil Curry is served on sweet potato noodles with coconut avocado sauce for a vegan meal that is healthy, quick and easy! Ready in only 20 minutes!
Sometimes I think that Mr. Google is the most useful man in the world.
And then sometimes, well, nahhhhhtsomuch.
Like today, when I asked him “What is a lentil?” and he answered me “A high-protein, edible PULSE.”
Say wha!?!?!? A pulse? Like the thing that I am pretty sure runs through my veins and if it did not I would be entering zombie territory? THAT PULSE?
I don’t even know.
I then searched further (read: clicked ALL the search results in attempt to find something that made sense) and learned they were a legume that grows on a bushy plant.
I then had the urge to ask The Googlemeister “what is a legume?” But I foresaw a rabbit hole of endless question asking that would probably culminate in me asking a ridiculous question like “what would happen if I tried to grow a lentil in a shoe, in the refrigerator?”
Don’t tell me you haven’t searched the most RANDOM questions ever, just to see if people have done it.
But that could just be me.
Although I am still unclear about what a lentil, in fact, IS (someone help?) I have learned that I quite enjoy putting them into my face by the fork-full. Like the pasta from last week, I realized that we really haven’t eaten lentils on FFF enough.
I mean, we have had 1 RECIPE: Lentil Salad. 1 + 0. 1 + none. O-N-E.
So, now we have 2. Which is still pathetic. Baby steps my peeps, baby steps.
We have to talk about the awkward vegetabely-elephant in the room. The spiralized sweet potatoes. I KNOW we literally just ate sweet potato burrito bowls yesterday, how-EV-ER, I warned you that I have been spiralizing all the things.
So there. You can’t get mad at me.
Especially because I am giving you something meatless and, not even vegetarian, but VEGAN friendly. You have all been asking for these sorts of recipes, but still sort of feels weird to me
Again, baby steps to reducing my carnivorous tendencies.
I can’t lie though. If no meat tastes like smooth-avocado-coconut-sauce-and-CREAMALICIOUS-red-lentils-and-don’t-even-get-me-started-on-how-the-sweet-poatoes-just-GO-with-the-spicy-Thai-Red-Curry, that just sohappens to be ready for me to NOM in 20 minutes, well
Sayonara chicken breast.
Well, until tomorrow. I don’t want go cold turkey.
SO MUCH POULTY REFERNCES.
