Red Lentil Curry

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by Sandra Hyde

A simple vegetarian curry. Split peas can be used instead of lentils. And the curry seasoning should be adjusted to taste.

On its own this would be good, however, I wanted more. I used this as a base. I added chopped green onion, mashed banana and some cumin and wrapped it in a tortilla and enjoyed it tremendously. I also have plenty of leftovers to do it again!! Thanks for posting this Sandra.
