Craving all the comforting, cozy and delicious recipes that are also easy and effortless. Enter this slow cooker sweet potato lentil curry!
The sweet and tender cubes of sweet potato, the layers of curry flavours, the creaminess of the coconut milk. Dreamy! (Is that weird to say about a curry? I don’t think so!).
This makes a big batch, so I’ve been making it on the weekend as part of meal prep. Freeze some for dinners, have some for work lunches, or have a big ol’ plant based dinner party with this tasty curry!
Some days the less thinking that needs to go into putting dinner on the table the better. This meal is so easy because the slow cooker does all the work. I’m sure it would work in and Instant Pot as well, if you test it out, let me know!
I paired mine with rice and mixed it all together. Also delicious with quinoa and entirely by itself! Drizzle with a little more coconut cream and a fresh toss of cilantro and you’re set!
