Vegan Sweet Potato & Kale Lentil Curry

Updated: Jul 28, 2018


When I can't think of what to cook for dinner, curry is one of my main go-to's, and when I say I can eat it for dinner almost every night, I mean it. It is seriously one my favorite entrées of all time! There's just something so incredibly comforting about a big bowl of rice and curry, the warm flavors; the mixture of textures; the creamy broth; it's honestly one of the few foods you can't mess up taste-wise!

Plus, you can have a different variety each night so you'll never get bored! Yup, there are so many options when it comes to curry thanks to its customizability. Throw in any leftover proteins and veggies you have sitting in your fridge and you're ready to go. Make yourself a big batch tonight, and freeze the rest for an easy meal prep! You will not be disappointed.
