  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup chopped veggies of choice (I used broccoli and carrot)
  • 1 cup cooked red lentils
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup diced, canned tomatoes
  • ½ tsp salt (or to taste)
  • ¼ tsp pepper (or to taste)
  • Juice from ½ lemon


  1. Heat coconut oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, ground ginger, curry powder, and a generous pinch of salt. Saute for 3-4 minutes until onions are soft and translucent. Stir in tomato paste. Cook for 1 minute.

  2. Pour in diced tomatoes and smash them a bit with the back of a fork. Bring to a simmer and cook for 4 minutes. Add cooked lentils and vegetables of choice. Reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper as needed. Stir in lemon juice.
