This might not be the prettiest meal that I’ve ever made, but it is one of the tastiest!  Do you all cook with curry powder much?  I didn’t start using it until a few years ago and now I can’t get enough of it.  I think I’d pretty much eat anything if it had curry in it :)

And, it happens to go really well with quinoa, lentils and sweet potato, which happen to be a few of my favorite foods!

This meal is kinda in-between a stew and a quinoa bowl.  It’s all cooked together with some creamy delicious coconut milk and veggie broth, but all the liquid is absorbed so it’s not quite a soup.  It’s also a really comforting meal, but I’m hoping the one-potness of it makes it acceptable for summer too :)

These days, my favorite meals are ones I can just throw into a pot, stir a few times and then viola, dinner is ready!  They’re easy, don’t require much work or attention and they’re pretty tasty too!

    This recipe is easy and delicious! I made it exactly following the recipe (I chose to use full fat coconut milk for a richer flavor) and it is perfect. You’re right, it isn’t the prettiest meal I’ve ever seen, LOL, but it is so tasty and healthy, and it is so nourishing and nutritious that I feel great about eating it.

      Yah! That is so nice to hear, Katie! I like using the full fat coconut milk too :) So glad you liked it!

    Hi Izzy. I made this dish last night for my lunch today. It is delicious! Never thought lentils and coconut milk would make such a great combination. Mine does not look fluffy and light like yours. It looks dark and mushy but I don’t mind. The taste is there. I do not like sweet potatoe so I did not add it. Love one pot recipies. Keep them coming!

      I’m so glad you liked it, Rosy! Coconut milk is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with and makes everything taste rich and delicious! I love one pot recipes too! :)

      Hi Marcy, I use another site to calculate the nutritional information so it’s hard to say what kind of broth they pulled. I’m so glad you and your kids liked it! My one year old loves it :)

    Made this for a friend’s pot luck dinner after their wedding. It was delicious and the pot was completely gone! My first experience with you. I’m moving back to a healthier way of eating. Do you have any ideas for substitutions on the tomato based and pepper products (enchilada sauce, etc.) as I don’t eat nightshades.

    Thanks so much for all your creativity.

      That is so great to hear, Jean! I’m so glad that everyone liked it! It’s not quite the same but I like to do a lot of pestos or cashew based cheese sauces instead of red sauce. They’re easy to make and I like them even more than red sauce! I also have a pumpkin enchilada sauce that you might like! (you can search for it at the top of the page) :)
