Ready for a super quick and easy dinner idea? This Sweet Potato Lentil Coconut Curry is one of our faves! It’s packed with flavor from spices, coconut milk, and thai basil, and it comes together in under 30 minutes. Perfect for when you need a hearty meal in no time!
This recipe is seriously so easy. I like to cook the lentils separately so they don’t absorb all the liquid from the curry and leave it too dry, but if you want to add 2-3 cups of veggie broth and let it all simmer together, it could easily be a one-pot meal! The super simple two-pot method looks like this: Cook lentils in a medium pot until tender. In a separate pot, cook sweet potatoes in creamy coconut milk with cozy, hearty spices. Add the lentils to the curry with some diced green peppers, simmer for a few minutes, and enjoy!
The curry comes out spicy, but not too spicy. You could always add a little extra sriracha if you want a bigger kick! And the ultimate key to curry deliciousness is topping it with lots of fresh cilantro and thai basil. The herbs really balance out the spicy, savory, earthiness of the curry and freshen everything up. So good!
One of the best things about this dish is that it’s even better the next day. All the flavors really meld together with time, so it makes great leftovers for lunch. Perfect for meal prepping lunches for the week!
