Meatless Monday Recipe: Slow Cooker Green Curry Lentils

Posted on January 6, 2014 by rebeccascritchfield

Happy Meatless Monday and happy New Year!

Today I wanted to share a simple, nutrient dense, and delicious one-pot meal your entire family will love: Slow Cooker Vegan Green Curry Lentils. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, as a busy and working mom there is nothing more exciting on a busy weeknight than coming home to a house filled with warm and welcoming smells and a ready cooked meal (with practically no clean up!). This beautiful protein and fiber dense recipe take only minutes of active cooking time and will simmer to perfection without tying you to the kitchen. Leave the work to the crock pot.

This recipe should make more than enough curried lentils for 4 hungry eaters, but feel free to double or triple the recipe for a bigger family or for leftovers. Leftovers are even better the second day (Meatless Tuesday) and also freeze and defrost easily. Enjoy!
