A super quick and healthy lentil curry recipe! Gluten and dairy free.


  • 1 cup dry lentils (200 g), soaked 2+ hours in water*, rinsed & drained
  • 2 ¼ cups vegetable or chicken broth (530 ml)
  • ½ Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small bunch kale, stems removed, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 can (400 ml) full fat coconut milk
  • 3 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ~4 cups cooked basmati rice


  1. Add lentils and broth to a medium pot. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer with the lid partially covered, stirring on occasion until lentils are fully cooked, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly massage kale with your hands. Heat coconut oil in a medium skillet. Add kale and saute on medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes or until tender. Use splashes of water to deglaze the pan if needed.
  3. Add sauteed kale, coconut milk, curry powder, garlic powder, and salt to the pot with the cooked lentils. Mix thoroughly. Heat to warm and serve over rice. Enjoy!


*Soaking lentils for at least 2 hours before cooking or overnight helps to remove gas producing chemicals found in the beans. Be sure to rinse in clean water after soaking. BONUS: soaking cuts down on cooking time!
