Lentil & Chickpea Curry

Pesto Princess © Red Lentil Stew

Hello #LoyalRoyals

Want to cook a healthy, plant-based supper tonight in record speed with just one pan? Enter our hearty recipe for Lentil & Chickpea Curry.

By using our Pesto Princess Red Lentil Soup as a base, this one-pan wonder gets a head-start. We bulked it up with sweet potato and chickpeas, but any veggies or pulses you have on hand will work.

The perfect supper for a chilly weeknight.💚
