Fantastic, loved it. Ate some the following day as a dip with toasted pumpkin and soy sourdough. I will make this often. Comfort food!!!

It is okay but you need to cut the potatoes smaller and let the lentils cook a bit longer
Great taste! I would definitely make it again!

Flavors were amazing! Served it with brown rice, which I won't do again, but definitely a repeat dish.

This was really delicious. I had read the comments so I only added half the stock but found it still to liquidy, next time I'll use less again we ended up straining some out. I only had tinned lentils so I used them and added some garlic, garam masala, extra curry powder and couldn't help but throw in some greens at the end with fresh brocollini, zuccuini and parsley. It was so yummy, we served it with a mix of ancient grains.

Wonderful- added a bit of garlic, used a fairly large sweet potato and carrot, served over basmati rice, will definitely fix this often!

I made this last week and am making it again tonight. My daughter and I both enjoy it.. It is wonderful as is. However, I do like to add a tablespoon of Garam Masala to the spices. I also , squeezed lime over it and chopped cilantro to serve. It’s a keeper.

Hearty and delicious. I've made variations with different vegetables too. All great!
It got ready quickly and tasted great. very happy with the recipe.

Nice enough but a bit wetter than I normally go for so had to chuck some of the liquid (and flavor) to get the consistency I was looking for.

This was decent but needed more seasoning and came out a bit runny so I had to add some roux to thicken it up, so it probably would have worked with half as much stock.

yum! added come cumin as well
Really nice and easy to cook. Will be cooking this again on the weekend. Needs to be refrigerated very quickly after cooling though.

Best served over basmati rice.

I added red bell peppers and used green Thai curry paste... I also added roasted fennel seeds... this turned out so yum!
My picky-eater husband liked it!
It was delicious. Making it again now.
It was easy and tasted okay but it was very bland. Needs more seasoning

It was fabbo!,used grated root ginger instead of powder.

This was delicious! I did make a few adjustments though. I used fresh crushed garlic and fresh ginger instead of ground. I also doubled the curry because I love curry! And I added green peas to give it more color! Also, I threw all ingredients in a crock pot and did not use coconut oil either for the sake of ease. Served it over steamed Jasmine rice. Very Yummy!!
Was very nice, simple to make. I didn’t have coconut oil at home but doubled on the coconut milk and slightly less stock. Used canned lentils instead of dry and worked really well

Sooo delicious! I prefer regular potatoes to sweet potatoes as we tried both. Can’t wait to make this again!

I love this. Just love. I just started to do vegan food and this seemed like a good start to go. I always loved veggies but now pushing myself to go deeper into veggies only world and cook healthier. Beautiful small portion for dinner and tomorrow’s lunch. Thank u and wish everyone happy cooking! ❤️
