Recipe: Sweet potato and lentil curry



I'm trying to eat healthier but still keep costs down, so I took a look at the BBC GoodFood website for inspiration. If you haven't already used it, I thoroughly recommend that you do! I looked specifically in the 'cheap eats' section, and there were tonnes of options. I changed a couple of bits about the recipe to suit what I like.  Here is how you make it:

Serves 2

Ingredients:
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 red onion
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tbsp medium curry powder
100g red lentils
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped 
500ml vegetable stock
400g chopped tomatoes (I used a can and some fresh tomatoes)
1 lime
1 satsuma

Method:
1. Heat oil in large pan, add red onions and allow to soften

2. Add spices to onion, stir and then add stock, lentils, tomatoes and sweet potatoes

3. Bring to boil then simmer for 15 minutes

4. Once the sweet potatoes are soft, add the juice of the lime and rip the satsuma segments in half and add to the curry. Serve with either rice or naan. 

This meal was so filling but also really healthy. 

Here is the link to the original recipe

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
