I am born and bred Adventist. A lot of adventists are either vegetarian or vegan. I am not. Being vegetarian/vegan has never appealed to me especially as a child because all the people I knew who were vegetarian ate beans and soy meat in rotation. It just looked boring to me. I don’t like being bored which is why I have so many hobbies and why I like to try different kinds of recipes.
I have also realised that I do not mind going without meat for as long as whatever else I am eating is interesting and is made in one pot! I have started eating lentils, I don’t know why it took me so long but it did. They are easy to cook plus they are affordable. I found this recipe for curried rice and lentils.
This dish uses my some of my favourite spices, cumin and coriander. Coriander always reminds me of boerewors which makes me miss Zimbabwe.
I used a recipe by Nagi from Recipe Tin Eats. I didnt have a tin of lentils so I boiled a cup of dry lentils until they were tender.
