Coconut Red Curry Lentils

I got so inspired watching youtube cooking videos the other night I had to try this curry recipe and it is now one of my absolute favorite recipes. I love how rich and satisfying this recipe is and it’s vegan (don’t tell Bowen)..he loved it too!


This recipe has all my favorite flavors, spicy red curry, rich coconut milk, bright lemon grass and lots of nutritional value from lentils, purple cabbage and peppers.


I served this over nutty brown rice with salted cashews and green onion. Leave a comment below if you try this recipe! Does anyone out there LOVE Indian food? We aren’t that adventurous but this recipe is easy and will definitely be added to the weekly rotation.

  1. To prepare lentils, simmer 1 cup lentils with 4 cups water for 30 minutes or until tender but not mushy.

 And moving on from Indian food to baby news.. It’s time for an update! We have arrived at the third trimester and man does it feel like it. My mind thinks I can do a whole lot more than this baby carrying body does. Many days I’ve set out to run and end up mostly walking with short burst of runs. I’m still exercising every day but it looks a lot different than normal, Jillian Michaels workout videos are my new routine paired with walks. 


I have to share with you the sweetest sewing I ever did see. My mom is the most talented, creative woman in the world. She is the best cook (really chef) I know, the most creative lady there is and can sew like nothing I’ve ever seen. She does beautiful french hand sewn work and designs the sweetest outfits for day to day. I am so excited it’s finally my turn for her to get to sew for Bowen V!
