Easy Lentil, Sweet Potato & Coconut Curry

If you’re looking for an easy and hearty vegetarian dinner, this curry is for you.


It comes from my friend Gena’s new book, Choosing Raw.

Many of you may already be familiar with Gena’s blog, which shares the same name as her book, but if you’re not, you’re missing out! Her blog is a fantastic resource for vegan living, but even if you’re like me and don’t follow a 100% vegan diet, I think most people will appreciate Gena’s commonsense approach to healthy eating.


In her book, Gena shares 125 recipes that show you how to make raw foods part of the way you eat. What I love about her approach is how she shares nourishing foods that require minimal food preparation, without any pressure to attempt an all-raw diet. (In fact, some of her recipes are cooked– like the one I’m sharing below.) Gena’s book also covers commonly asked questions about a vegan diet, and healthy eating in general, putting to rest some common myths and misconceptions with her scientifically sound perspective. Her writing and recipes have been a source of inspiration for me over the past several years, so I’m thrilled to see her finally in print!


Gena’s mouth-watering recipes like Burnt-Sugar Coconut Ice Cream, No-Bake Sunflower Oat Bars, and her Kale & White Bean Caesar Salad are sure to have you eating well, while enjoying every bite. We all know that eating more plant-based food is a step in the right direction, regardless of where you are coming from, so I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as I have!

Below you’ll find the recipe for Gena’s delicious vegan curry that Austin and I enjoyed for dinner last night– it’s delicious!

Easy Lentil, Sweet Potato & Coconut Curry (Vegan)
Serves 4

Reprinted with permission from Choosing Raw


1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup dried red lentils (<–I used green lentils, which also worked!)
1 medium sweet potato, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 large carrot, sliced lengthwise and chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 tablespoon mild curry powder
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 1/2 cups vegetable broth or water
1/2 cup coconut milk


1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Saute the onion until it’s turning a little golden. Add the lentils, potato, carrot, and seasonings, and stir to combine everything.

2. Add the water or broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes, or until the lentils and sweet potato are tender. Stir in the 1/2 cup of coconut milk. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve warm. (We served ours over cooked quinoa.)


Curry will keep for up to 4 days in the fridge. Leftovers can be frozen.

      This looks Yummilicious! I just got into this lifestyle, so I’m learning every day πŸ™‚ Would love to see some coconut Milk recipes!

  1. Kara

    This is perfect! I am currently making meals that my husband and I can eat with my 8 mo old. She is not a fan of textures, so I will be blending half of this batch up and freezing it. Thank you for this:)

  2. Nadia

    Thank you for the curry lentil dish-what a great combination, can’t wait to try it! Since fall is right around the corner I’d love to see more heartier dishes (stews, soups, curries-pretty much anything that will warm your soul and body)! Thank you for all you do!!!

  3. Natalie Stakich

    This sounds delicious! I’d love to see more recipes with honey in them. Love your site!

  4. Kristie

    PINNED – can’t wait to try this recipe and check out Gena’s blog. I’d love to see more easy ‘breakfast as I run out the door to work’ recipes – I usually have a smoothies but sometimes want something savory.

  5. Ellen

    I made something very similar to this last night! Even though it’s still hot here, my husband is a bit under the weather, so I decided a “whatever is hanging out in the fridge soup” was in order. Carrots, celery, two kinds of lentils, red potatoes, and finished off with a few handfuls of spinach that were a bit past their best.

    I like recipes that are easily adaptable, like soups and stir-frys. Most of the time I have a meal plan, but sometimes I’m left with random leftover ingredients, and I don’t like to see food go to waste. Thanks!

  6. Alix

    Sounds delicious! I love your recipes. I could always use more breakfast suggestions. I know I need to start the day with a protein-rich breakfast but I usually have coffee and don’t eat until lunch. I need some inspiring recipes to get me to eat breakfast.

  7. Janice

    Yum! This is what Im making for dinner! I am new to juicing, but get bored with the same old thing…I would love to see some of your favorite juice combinations!

  8. Julie

    That looks great! The type of recipes I’d like to have more of are things like casseroles that require little handling and can be used for leftover but are still healthy!

  9. Lauren M.

    YUM! I always like recipes that are so simple it probably feels silly posting them – really simple dinners that can be made after work when I’m starving! Thanks!

  10. Kate

    I’d love to see more recipes like this one. I’m going to take a giant leap forward in my lifestyle and try to be completely vegan. I’d love some more dinner, lunch vegan recipes. Perhaps using tofu, definitely beans and lots of veggies!

    1. April

      Ditto, minus the Tofu. We’re a soy free, grain free house. Would love to see more lunch/dinner recipes like this one. Also would love some easy to pack lunch ideas for transporting to school/work. Thanks!

  11. Nora

    Congrats to Gena ! I have seen her blog before thanks to you letting us know. I would love to see more ethnic inspired recipes that are not too complicated, but yummy and healthy. Maybe some grocery store buying tips too. Thanks !

  12. Cheryl Isbell

    Everything you post seems to make my family happy. I always enjoy trying to teach my teenagers that you can eat healthy and still have it taste good. I want to be an example for their eating habits but feel like I’m not getting any where with all the fast food joints popping up at every corner. Show me what I can inspire them with:) Thanks for all your wonderful ideas so far!

  13. Dawdy-Narvaez

    Thanks for the opportunity to win the book. I would like to see more high in protien recipes. Thanks.

  14. Nicole

    Would love to see more one-pot mains that are easy on a grad-school time and financial budget!

  15. Kim

    This looks amazing! I really love your healthy/gluten free versions of comfort food and would like to see more of these! Some more recipes with meat would be amazing as well!

  16. Amy

    I would love to see more recipes that are pre-workout and post-workout meals and snacks. I would also love to see meals that are kid friendly and easy to chew. My daughter is 16-months old and only has 8 teeth. It is hard to find recipes that are healthy, easy to chew and kid friendly.

  17. Misty

    I am fairly new to your site but so far I have loved every recipe I have tried. I would love to see more easy dinners that are healthy.

  18. Sheri McNeely

    More cook ahead meals that can be paired with other sides for new meals later in the week.

  19. Elisabeth

    This recipe looks so good! πŸ™‚ I’m hoping to see more recipes for vegan foods that are usually not vegan, such as vegan (hot) dogs or vegan cheesecake and stuff like that.

  20. Mona Han

    I’d love to see more of recipes from international cuisines. I know that people in other countries can’t afford to eat meat protein every meal, and there are many creative, delicious, plant-based dishes that we can expose our taste buds to. I’m always amazed by the use of herbs and spices that takes the flavor to the next level. πŸ™‚

    1. Abbi*tarian

      Yes to more international cuisine!! That’s just what I was about to put. Good going, Mona Han! Megan, I love when you post yummy Indian (my favorite cuisine), Mexican & Thai meals & would love to see cuisine from all over Africa, as well!! (Yes to all over the world, too. Those are just my favorites.) I look forward to devouring this meal you posted, here. I love curried almost anything.

  21. Jenesa

    As a person who is a wee bit lacking in the creativity (and cooking confidence) departments, I appreciate each of the recipes you share! I especially like these hearty vegetarian recipes and always look for those. It’s nice to feed my family well without the expense of meat at every meal!

  22. Andria

    This looks great! I would also like to see more “kid-friendly” recipes as well as recipes that are quick and easy!! Thank you!

  23. Kim

    I can’t wait to try this. I would love to see more recipes with lentils, so good for you and one of the easiest legumes to digest. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of Gena’s book! Trying to eat more raw meals, I am sure her book would inspire me!

  24. DD

    Cant wait to try this simple recipe with all these super healthy ingredients! Thanks for sharing it!

  25. Connie

    I’m going to make this mu husband loves curry I want to surprise him thank u so much for sharing plus I’m diabetic I think it would be great for me as well

  26. Robbi Parker

    This looks great! How about some recipes for snacks. When I’m in a rush and have nothing on hand is when I tend to reach for something quick and it’s not always healthy.

  27. Mary

    Looks yummy! I love all the sweet treats and the “how to make” your own from scratch. Almond butter, almond milk…

  28. Laura

    With Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon I’ve been looking for healthy appetizers and/or treats I can serve to my guests. Also, as a busy mom with a full-time job outside of our home, I love anything that can be put in the slow cooker or freeze ahead meals!

  29. Brittany Shook

    Keep doing what you’ve been doing! It’s a great variety and my family and I love trying all your recipes!

  30. Teri

    This looks delish! I am not Vegan but LOVE any/all vegan dishes I have ever tried. I would like some quick and easy recipes for weeknight meals. The last thing I want to do after working for 9 1/2 hours and commuting for 3 hours is spend a significant amount of time in the kitchen preparing an evening meal.

  31. Rachel

    More recipes for picky eaters! πŸ™‚ People who are “new” to healthy eating and averse to veggies, for instance, as several of my extended family members are!

  32. Sheila

    I am sensitive to gluten, dairy and soy and my husband is vegetarian so I would love to see more recipes like this one! Simple and easy to rope are with items on hand.

  33. Christi

    I’m always looking for more hearty dishes (that are easy and quick!) since my family has transitioned to a vegan/raw/gluten-free/paleo-esque lifestyle. With fall right around the corner, I can’t wait to try this!

  34. Erica Madden

    Would love to see more of easy recipes like this. I’m a college student and work part time and this recipe looks inexpensive and quick! Thank you!!

  35. Dianne Clarke

    I would love more one put meals that are gluten and meat free. Also love all the gluten free muffins, cookies and treats. I love your simple, easy to make recipes.

  36. Kayla

    Thanks for the opportunity to win the book!! I would like to see more main dish meals. It’s hard to come up with ideas but your website inspires me!!

    1. Carole

      Gabriela — I had the same issue when I was pregnant, trying to find lots of stuff to eat cold.

      I’m guessing like me you don’t want to use a microwave to heat anything up. If you ever want to take something hot to work I used this: http://mightynest.com/shop/reusable-gear/food-containers/insulated-food-containers/stainless-steel-thermos

      I did as the directions suggested put hot water in it(then you dump it out before putting your food in), heated my food on the stove before I left for work, and then put in this container.

  37. Cara

    This curry recipe looks delicious! Thank you for the opportunity to win the cookbook :). I would love to see more grain free lunch recipes. I have recently decided to go gluten/wheat/grain free. I am new to your website, but I absolutely love it! I have loved every recipe I have tried so far! You are really helping me make better food choices and I feel so inspired :). Keep up the good work!!

  38. Tasha L.

    This looks delicious! I’d love to see more main dish / dinner recipes. I do love your dessert recipes, but I haven’t even made half of them yet. πŸ™‚

  39. Cassie Shouo

    I love the recipes you post already! Interested in salad and dressing variety, and on the go breakfast/mid morning snacks πŸ™‚

  40. Jen P.

    I’d love to see more slow-cooker recipes. I’m a grad student, mom to a 4 year old, and we have another little one on the way, so quick & healthy meals are a must in our house!

  41. Laurie

    This recipe sounds amazing and I am going to try it for dinner tonight. I would love to see more quicky meals and more desserts. Thank you…

  42. Michelle Paul

    This recipe looks amazing! My husband and I just went vegetarian about a year ago, love quick and easy but healthy recipes.

  43. Emily M

    I would like to see more breakfast and snack recipes! πŸ™‚ I absolutely love your website and recipes!!

  44. Yoojin

    i love all your recipes! i’d love to see not necessarily vegan, vegetarian, or any diet-label recipes, but just healthy and detox-ilicious ones πŸ™‚

  45. Erin McCormack

    Looking forward to trying the Lentils, Sweet potato, Coconut Curry Recipe…thanks for sharing! I am a lover of all kinds of beans and advocado so I would like to see more recipes using those items and more stew/soup recipes!,

    Thanks for sharing such wonderful recipes

  46. Sarah

    I’m a new mom, so I’d love to see either quick filling snacks you can grab and eat with one hand, or main dishes you can make ahead!

  47. Carra

    I’m wheat and dairy intolerant so I love the recipes that feature alternatives. Also love vegan and vegetarian recipes. Thanks so much for your website!

  48. Patty

    Excited to try this recipe. My daughter has been going RAW for several months now and not only does she look amazing she reports feeling so much better. I would love to see more recipes containing winter veggies. Yum!

  49. Ari

    Hey there! I’m a college student and I have trouble finding time to make healthy meals during the week when the semester gets busy, so I’d love to see recipes that I could make in large batches on a Sunday that would last in the fridge for 4-5 days. I’m big into Asian flavors and stir fries (but unfortunately those taste much better straight out of the pan!). I’m dairy-free and gluten-free but looking for recipes that are not too high maintenance!

  50. Tricia Horst

    I’m new to cooking in a more healthy manner. I recently did a 21day detox with the Simple Green smoothie group and absolutely LOVE this way of eating. Even more exciting is that my 3 grandkids, whom i raise, also love the food! It’s wonderful to know that i can teach them healthy eating habits and create life long changes in their life. This recipe looks like another to add to the growing list of favorite healthy meals!
    Thank you!

  51. Mattocks

    I would love to see more vegan dinner ideas using minimal ingredients (like 7-5)! Keep ’em coming. I love all your posts.

  52. Katie

    I would mostly love to see more recipes that are grab and go/ good for travel. Love the healthy desserts too.

    This recipe sounds awesome!! Gonna try it! I’d like to have more quick healthy lunch ideas I can make before I run out the door to work!

  54. carol k

    Trying to eat clean for the last 15 months and really missed soups/stews last winter. Looking forward to trying this recipe and would love to win this book! More soup recipes please!

  55. Beth

    I’d love to see more dinner ideas as apposed to sweets though I always love your recipes for sweets!

  56. Sydnee

    I would love to see more raw recipes! When I think of eating raw, for some reason it always brings carrots and celery sticks to mind, but I know eating raw can be so much more than that! And the health benefits are SO astounding! I love the raw recipes you already have and would gladly welcome more!

  57. Lydia Claire

    I like to see the nutritional breakdown of a recipe. This way it’s easier to know if it’s for a special occasion or something to put into regular rotation.

  58. Adelle

    This lentil curry looks delicious!
    I would love to see more raw recipes. I really love raw desserts as well and have made several from your website.

  59. Carolyn

    I would like to see more candida cleansing recipes. I did a candida cleanse a couple of months ago, but need a little inspiration as of late to continue to stay closer to a sugar-free diet.

  60. Meridith

    I like to see some hearty main courses like this one, to feed my giant of a husband who is slowly learning there are better things out there than meat and potatoes.

  61. allie

    Loved this dish, and so easy to make. Can def make a batch and split up for multiple measl… which is how I like to cook!

  62. Kayla Clark

    I would love to see more recipes that are good to put in the freezer and store for a quick meal later.

  63. Kay

    I love your recipes and would love more vegetarian or vegan recipes. I am trying very hard to cut out wheat, sugar, and oil. I find Coconut butter works just as well as coconut oil in some of your candy recipes.

  64. Dee

    Anything gluten free. With fall approaching, warm breakfast and soup ideas. Great blog, Megan! Can’t wait to try this recipe.

  65. Cindy S.

    Would love more veggie recipes and crockpot or one pot meals. I do think you do well in varying your recipes. They are all good – haven’t had one fail me yet. Thanks Megan for all you do!

  66. Jen

    This looks delicious! I love so many of your recipes! I would be interested to see more of anything, but if I had to pick perhaps savory breakfast ideas and/or easy dinner ideas. I also like your sauces that then I can put on anything for dinner. Thanks for everything you do! And I hope you’re enjoying your little one!!

  67. Shelby

    I love this recipe! I currently have leftovers in my fridge from earlier this week. I’ve been making Gena’s curry recipes my whole pregnancy because they are so simple and I can always find the ingredients while living in Japan πŸ™‚ I would love to see more simple recipes using lentils and other beans. Curries are my favorite but am looking for a simple tomato based lentil soup. Thanks for sharing!

  68. Nomi Goodnight

    I would also love to see more soup and stew recipes. Thank you for all you do, Detoxinista!

  69. David

    Looks great! Would love to see more recipes using more and different kinds of beans . . . . thank you!

  70. Colleen

    Sounds delish! My boyfriend is Celiacs and I am vegetarian (since age 6) so any dishes that combine the two!

  71. Michele Brown

    I can’t wait to try this recipe, it looks like it will hit the spot. I would love to see more recipes like this for comfort food season (fall and winter).

  72. Cher

    Thank you for sharing this recipe – actually have all I need to make it tonight πŸ™‚
    I appreciate all the recipe ideas you’ve been providing – am new to ‘healthy eating’, changing my eating habits and lifestyle in order to improve my health.
    What I’d love to see more of; perhaps just some ‘alternatives’ (ie ‘x’ can be substituted for ‘y’)with the recipes.
    I love trying new recipes but do get stuck on finding so many new ingredients.

  73. Bay

    I have just started dabbling in raw cooking, I like making raw desserts for my husband since he has a sweet tooth! I would love recipes I can use with my VitaMix, like raw salad dressings, but mostly I need some delicious raw breakfast ideas! I would LOVE to win the cookbook and get more knowledge/ideas on tasty raw meals!

  74. Karen

    Recipes that seriously push the detoxing……. Dishes that can be made and then re made or revisited with tweaks for different kinds of meals. Most of all? Most of all I want a raw peanut butter cheese cake. Really I want a raw peanut butter cheese cake with a chocolate fudge swirl but…….I can pull off the swirl and I have a wonderful crust but I can’t seem to get a peanut butter cheesecake made with cashews or macadamia nuts…. And what’s with these people who dump both the peanut butter and chocolate TOGETHER and blend it in and call it done? Just wrong. I want the peanut butter with a fudge swirl and leave the cocoa out of the peanut butter. LOL. Yeah, I’m like that! But I’ve been looking for one for a while……..to no avail. Thanks for all the great recipes.

  75. Ali

    We live in a warm climate, so I would love more salads and salad dressing recipes. Made your peanut-free salad dressing last night and it was awesome!!
    Thanks for a great site!

  76. Amy

    This looks amazing! I’d like to see more recipes using Indian spices & all their health benefits!

  77. Hannah

    Wow – this soup looks amazing!! I can’t wait to try it! While I love experimenting with all your dessert recipes, I would actually like to see more recipes like this – dinner ideas that I can feed to my whole family (including a 2 and 5 yr old)!

  78. Natalie

    Yum! this looks amazing for fall!
    I would love to see quick and easy meals that I can make in a pinch and feed everyone (5,4 and 2 year old!) and my husband who eats meat, but will eat a tasty meal like this and enjoy it.

  79. Tammie

    I have tried many of your recipes and every single one of them has proved to be a “keeper”! One type of recipe I would like to see more of is vegan Mexican dishes.

  80. Kristi

    More quick and simple vegan meals and desserts, please. Everything I’ve trid had been amazing!!! I have all the ingredients so this curry will be dinner πŸ™‚

  81. Tama Babcock

    To Ms. Detoxinista. I love your site and your recipes. I’m currently deployed to Afghanistan and have no way of cooking but when I return home in October of this year I’ll be trying everything.
    It’s been a long deployment and I am so tired of eating “bad” food over here. So, so looking forward to real food and trying our your recipes. Thank you for doing what you do.

  82. Corrine

    I’d like to see healthy recipes that are low-sodium and on the lower end for calories and fat.

  83. debbie

    ANything with dates. I’ve recently learned to use them as a sugar substitute in baking & some dressings. Would love to learn other ways to incorporate them in my cooking.
    The book looks amazing!

  84. Stephanie

    Looking for easy raw recipes as I try to incorporate more raw meals into my day. Also hoping to find lots of gluten and egg-free recipes – especially for breakfast (that’s the hardest meal of the day for me to find something yummy that keeps me full).

  85. Ginny Speaks

    I so LOVE your recipes and blog. Would like to see more soups and one pot meals.
    This curry looks absolutely amazing. Thank you for all you do. I have spread the word to all my friends about your blog and recipes. Blessings on your day!

  86. Paula

    Love the lentil recipe but not a big fan of curry. Yesterday i put together for the first time a trio of sprouted lentils (Tru Roots) and mixed with cooked mashed butternut squash with coconut sugar and cinnamon. it was hearty and sweet. Next time i thnk I will serve over quinoa…… I’d love to see more sweet recipes.

  87. Megan

    This looks amazing!! I looove lentils and adore curry! πŸ™‚ I would love to see more main dishes, particularly soups, stews, and other crock pot friendly meals for the upcoming fall!

  88. robin

    This recipe looks great. Thanks for sharing. I love to bake and would love to see VEGAN recipes for baking yummies πŸ™‚
    I liked the idea that someone wrote about post menopausal recipes.
    Keep doing what you are doing though….

  89. Barb Grimshaw

    Can’t wait to try this recipe! I’ve been looking for more meatless dishes that are simple…I’m not into complicated recipes; my life is too busy. This sounds like something that I can do quickly and yet have a lovely different taste. Thanks!

  90. Yajhayra Maria

    I would love to see more international dishes like this one!! This Curry Lentils look delicious, making it this week. I would love this book..It will help me incorporate more raw recipes into my diet. Thanks

  91. Catherine McCormick

    Lved the creamy potato salad and the avocado/chickpea salad, which made a great spread for a veggie sandwich! It’s going to be warm for a long time in Sonoran Desert, cool and easy dishes!

  92. Theresa

    This looks absolutely amazing. Can’t wait to try it. Would love to see more recipes like this!!

  93. Kay Janflone

    I can’t wait to try this recipe……I would love crock pot meals so I can put it together then come home from work and have most of the dinner made. Also, just one pot meals are great too. Love your website πŸ™‚

  94. Michelle C

    Going along with this fabulous vegan lentil curry recipe that you reposted from Gena’s wonderful book, I’d love to see more quick and simple international dishes!

  95. Kathleen Schell

    Red Beets made into a dessert, beets are so sweet that I think pureed and mixed with almond flour, coconut oil and perhaps walnuts? I love all of the recipes on your blog and you have made my life so much more enjoyable. I hope I win!!!

  96. Elizabeth

    I love your blog and look forward to your posts. I would love to see some bean and veggie/greens combos in soups or main dishes for the Fall season. Also, maybe an occasional cultured vegetable for flu season. πŸ™‚

  97. Cathy S.

    This recipe and the book look awesome. I can’t wait to try the curry. I would love to see more pickled / fermented veggie recipes. Thank you!

  98. Brianna

    Veggie burger recipes would be amazing! Also, some healthy holiday meal ideas would be great too, specifically main dish ideas!

  99. Debbie

    I’d love to see recipes that are minimally processed and don’t take long to prepare. The fewer the ingredients, the better! In other words, more of what you’ve been sharing!

  100. Gaby

    I’d love more ways to eat kale and other greens for someone who kind of hates veggies 😑 I could eat fruit and desserts all day every day!

  101. annie

    I love snacks! So I would love to see more bar and smoothie recipes, or anything that involves coconut flour! Love to use coconut flour in recipes but its a bit tricky because of how much liquid it absorbs. Love your site!

  102. Elodie

    I’d like to see more recipes that don’t require many ingredients, some of which can be readily purchased from a farmers’ market or that you might already have in your fridge/pantry/kitchen.

  103. Christine

    This recipe looks great. I would like to see more main entree recipes with chicken. I’m cooking for a family of 5 and they get tired of the same chicken dishes! πŸ™‚

  104. Emma

    Pick me, pick me! I love soups and stews– big thick chunky ones like this, not pureed smooth ones.

  105. Tami

    Looks fabulous! Planning on making this tomorrow & enjoying for lunches this week.
    I would love to see more one pot & soup recipes & also meal planning tips & recipes for make ahead meals.
    Thank you!!!!

  106. Ashley P

    I would love to see more vegan and gluten free recipes. Especially easy recipes that I can make and take to work for lunch.

  107. Kara

    I would love to see more vegan/g-free meals for breakfast/lunch/dinner that can be made easily in a small kitchenette or dorm room. I’m moving into my freshman year of college and I want nothing more than to easily maintain my healthy lifestyle/eating habits. I found your blog during my freshman year of High School and you really helped me and my family understand how to thrive on a plant based whole foods lifestyle. Thank you so much for all you do!

  108. michelle m

    Sounds wonderful! I can’t wait to try it. Would love to see some grab and go items.Kid friendly. πŸ™‚

    I’m new to your web page (found it through zite) and as I’m from the other side of the globe in Australia where it’s late winter so this hearty casserole is perfect! I will be adding it this weeks menu plan – can’t wait. I’m not vegetarian but like to have a non meat meal at least once a week. Hearty casseroles like this are perfect and what I’d like to see more of – great for cooking up large batches and having handy ready meals in the freezer for those busy evenings. Mild curries are also great as my kids won’t touch dishes that are too hot (spicey).
    I am looking forward to exploring your web site and adding some more vegetarian foods to my repertoire.

    It would be great to see some travel friendly recipes. It’s always hard to eat gluten-free and vegan on the road (my husband and I found that out the hard way when we moved from Virginia to Florida, and we may soon be moving from Florida to Georgia, if not just making the trek once before a move up that way to go to a wedding). Granola is great, but it gets old quick. Thanks for this opportunity!

  111. Jessica

    Wow, sounds great! I would love to see more easy, Raw recipes that could be served as an entree and would appeal to vegans and non-vegans alike πŸ˜‰

  112. Katie

    I would LOVE to see you share some healthy asian-inspired recipes. My 6 kiddos and I love asian food, but rarely eat it because it’s generally chock full of salt and sugar. Thanks! πŸ™‚

      Oops! I forgot to rate the recipe. I’m giving it a 5 based on the ingredient list and easy of recipe, but as I just saw this post today, I haven’t had the opportunity to make it yet (I will be though, as I happen to have ALL the ingredients on hand…yay!).

  113. joan wooton

    This looks delish! Im new to all things vegan!would love to see more recipes using coconut milk. Thankyou.

  114. Catherine

    I would love to see lunch box type foods for people who work shifts; specifically night shifts. these foods would need to be light but provide energy for a body that is already stressed out and screaming to sleep!!I would also love to see more recipes using sea vegetables and foods that you can forage for !! yes honestly!!

  115. Brianna

    I just made this recipe tonight and it was completely amazing! I served it over some cooked millet!

  116. Sarah

    I would like to see more different fall/winter type main dish recipes. I am better at fall/winter type cooking, but a lot of my recipes are alike.

  117. Marissa

    Your blog is great; I am a daily follower. I would like to see more dinner recipes. I’m trying to get my father into clean, healthy eating. I want to make him meatless meals. Also, some out of the box breakfast recipes. Thanks for the opportunity to win the giveaway!


  118. Angela

    I’m fairly new to eating plant based foods and although I am loving it, my husband is a fast food junkie and picky eater. Are there any recipes that you could recommend that I can make that he’d enjoy? He’s not a fan of many vegetables and beans but he does like tofu. W

  119. sassygirl

    we love lentils…in all colors! πŸ™‚
    would love to see a lot more heart
    healthy breakfast recipes! thanks.

  120. Leslie

    I always love seeing easy, one-dish kind of entrees that can be made ahead of time (especially since my classes are about to start back up this week)!

  121. Kristin

    I agree with several comments thus far — hearty soups and stews that are cheap, easy, nutritious! This looks delicious!

  122. mia

    I think u have a good variety! What I love is old comforting recipes made new again the healthy way!

  123. Rhonda Swetnam

    Wow Gena, your new book looks amazing! Thank you both, Gena and Detoxinista for this opportunity! I would love to see more recipes that contain SCD legal ingredients. Both myself and my youngest daughter, who has Celiac and ulcerative colitis follow the SCD diet. Thanks again and LOVE your blog!!

  124. Kenzie

    I would love to see more breakfast recipes that are free of coconut and almond-especially waffles! Also some dairy and coconut free ice cream!

  125. ACmommy

    I really appreciate all the diary-free and grain-free and other ___-free πŸ˜‰ recipes you share on your blog! With family that ranges from deadly allergies to just food sensitivities your blog has been a blessing!! More low-carb dinner ideas (that are fairly “normal” and easy to make) would be awesome, plus more dairy-free recipes. πŸ™‚

  126. Darlene

    Looks delicious. I’m looking for good healthy recipes to help with diabetes. Thanks for sharing.

  127. AngelaC

    Thank You for this recipe! I would love more recipes like this one. Also, more soups recipes like maybe a parsnip soup. I am making more and more of your veggie chips and snacks, more recipes like that would be delightful. Thank You for all of the wonderful dessert recipes…can’t go wrong their either. You are amazing,

  128. Janelle Hajjar

    This cookbook looks really cool! I’d love to see more recipes with exotic flavors, just like this curry recipe!

  129. Ashley

    I love all your quinoa recipes….I love curry dishes also! Anything you’ve posted has been amazing!

  130. Sarah

    You do a great job and your website is a valued resource to me. However, this is one of the few lentil recipes you have posted. With that said, I would love to see more recipes for main dishes featuring lentils. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

  131. Cheryl

    Made it & loved it. I was sure that it would be delicious, so I went ahead and doubled the batch. So glad I did. Will definitely be making it again.

  132. annie

    Would love to see recipes for leftover pulp from juicing or from making nut milks. I haven’t found a recipe of yours that my family and I didn’t like. I enjoy coming to your blog and reading it. Thanks for all your hard work.

  133. FitnFifty

    This sounds wonderful! More easy and flavorful dishes like this one. I cannot wait to try it.

  134. Sarah

    Please post more savory indian-inspired recipes. Winter is just around the corner and I’ll need “comfort” food ideas!

  135. Elizabeth

    I love this blog! I really love veggie-rich one-pot meals, especially ones that make great leftovers! Would love to see more of those πŸ™‚

  136. John

    This recipe looks awesome. We’ll be trying it tonight.

    More recipes for kids please. I think we’ve tried every one on this site. The kids love cauliflower cruse pizza recipe.


  137. Ceil Hook

    Would love to see more recipes like this…quick, tasty meals. I can do this after work! Add a salad, and it’s a meal.

  138. Katie Gonzalez

    Love your website- all the recipes I have tried of yours have been great. I would like to see more recipes without any honey/agave/sugar along with crockpot meals? Its getting to be that season of soups and easy slowcooker meals πŸ™‚

    Thank you for all you do!

  139. Nicole

    I’d love to see more entree recipes like this curry – although I absolutely love the healthy dessert recipes!

  140. BYOL

    Hey Detoninista!
    Just found the site. Love it and a big fan of Choosing Raw! I love anything with lentils and as always, 100% vegan!


  141. Carrie

    I think recipes that can be made ahead and frozen for busy nights would be awesome! Quick and filling breakfast items too!

  142. nikolai pizarro

    This recipe is very similar to one I make and its a winner every time.
    I want to see more grain free recipes and also I love asian-indian flavors.

  143. Lauren A

    I love your quick dinner recipes and healthy desserts and snacks. But over the next year, I’ll be on the lookout for baby/toddler recipes!

  144. Claudia

    I recently stopped not eating any animal products except eggs. (its been one week know) And it would really help to see more vegan entrees (lunch and dinner ideas) that are filling and easy to make. Nothing with a huuge list of ingredients or something so simple that it doesnt fill you.

  145. Jessica

    Perhaps a few more main dishes or hearty soups. I adore this site and every recipe I’ve tried has been wonderful!

  146. Hannah

    I love any and all soup recipes – and anything I can make large amounts of and freeze. I am cooking for one most of the time, and the same thing everyday gets boring!

  147. Melissa Kinsler

    I always come to your blog when I’m creating my grocery list. I want to make sure I have my frig & pantry stocked with items from new recipes (& old) you post like this one. Lentils, sweet potatoes and curry added. Everything else are staples.

  148. holyladle

    I’m revisiting ideas for healthy lunches for the picky 9 year old. Thermoses are no longer “cool” and I’m feeling a sense of dread at the beginning of this school year. Love the recipes I find here, and appreciate the uptick in ideas!

  149. Rita

    Just made this dish and it is delish! Have made many of your recipes. All great! Look forward to seeing your new posts every day.

  150. Abby

    This is a perfect example of what I’d love to see more of-ethnic foods vegan-style! Nevertheless, I love your blog, it is very inspiring!

  151. Elliannarain

    This blog rocks! I just found it the other day and have been reading pages past. πŸ™‚ happy and excited to try some recipes! I also love and appreciate seeing what you eat in a day -I struggle with eating right, I love veggies but am a wife and mother to 8 picky eaters and too often I give in.. Big thanks

  152. Chris

    I would like to see more easy, simple weeknight meals that are gluten, soy, dairy, and grain free.

  153. Bobbie

    This curry looks amazing! I am looking for lactose-free, lower sugar recipes. We are trying to lose a substantial amount of weight by making gradual changes like eating more frequent vegetarian and vegan meals.

  154. Lizzie

    I would love to see more breakfast recipes! And maybe some that are friendly for Football Sundays πŸ™‚

  155. Erin W.

    I would love to see more one pot/crockpot meals! Good food prep on the weekend for weeknight dinner type stuff πŸ™‚

  156. Mary Nichols

    I am desperate for more make and freeze type meals. It seems I am always in need of something quick for my family to eat!

  157. Bradley Ryan

    Keep up the good work! My wife makes your recipes all the time, and I have enjoyed every one of them so far!
