I love an easy weeknight dinner! This One-Pot Curried Lentils & Rice is made in one pot (obviously), and in just 30 minutes. Filled with veggies and protein-packed lentils. This one is going to be on your regular rotation!

Step One: Prep the Ingredients

The great part about this recipe is that there is very little prep. Just dice 1/2 of an onion, some garlic and bell peppers. Heat some oil in a skillet and add the veggies. Cook for a couple of minutes, before adding in the red curry paste.

Red curry paste has SO much flavor, it really adds so much to this recipe. Once the red curry paste has cooked down for about a minute, add in the rice, cooked lentils, coconut milk, broth and soy sauce. Give everything a good mix and bring it to a boil. Cover, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Step Two: Add the Greens

After the rice has simmered for 15 minutes, it should be mostly cooked. Remove the lid, add chopped spinach, green onion, cilantro and lime juice. Mix until the spinach has wilted and the rice finishes cooking, about 5 minutes.

Give it a taste to see if you need to add more lime juice, or another splash of soy sauce. And you are ready to dig in.

Step Three: Serve it Up

Spoon some of the lentils and rice onto each plate and top it off with some Thai basil. Serve with lime wedges on the side for a little more tang.

This is great for a busy weeknight when you are short on time and want something nutritious and delicious! The leftovers are great the next day for lunch too!
