French Lentil Coconut Curry With Spinach
Though any type of Lentils are my favourite approach to get protein in my food plan. I’ve to confess I’ve by no means tried French lentils till very late in my maturity. Better part about them it’s the flavour; it’s nutty and peppery with earthly taste. You should utilize them in soups, salad and curry. I attempted them in a Coconut Curry with spinach and it’s a ONE-POT meal.
