Recipe

So I have to admit, the inspiration for today's recipe came from one of my favorite store bought lunches - Tastybite Madras Lentils - an Indian lentil dish made with a curry of tomatoes, coconut milk, and spices. While I am a fan of the store bought version, I always prefer to make things at home when I can. This curry is a very milk Indian curry without the deep smoky or spicy flavors of many of curries. Usually I make mine the traditional way with potatoes but you could use sweet potatoes or hearty squash as well. In addition, I love adding some spinach or kale to get some extra veggies but you could leave this out. It freezes great so consider making a large enough portion for leftovers.
