  • 1/4 Cup Yellow Curry Paste
  • 2 Cups White Rice
  • 1/4 Whole Yellow Onion diced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 14.5 Ounces Coconut Milk
  • 29 Ounces Whole Tomatoes
  • 12 Ounces Baby Kale
  • 2 Cups Yellow Lentils


  1. Cook the rice according to the box instructions.

    Pre-cook the lentils according to the box instructions as well.

    Begin by heating the oil in a Dutch oven.  Add the onions and cook for 2 - 3 minutes to begin to soften.  Next, add in the yellow curry paste and mix well.  Cook for 1 - 2 minutes to release all the flavor.  Now it is time to add the coconut milk.  Mix well and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and add the whole tomatoes (without the juice).  

    Now it is time to add the lentils followed by the baby kale.  Mix the kale in and cook until the kale wilts.  Mix completely.

    Serve over white rice.  Enjoy!
