Louise is one of our awesome team members and she's quite the dab hand at vegetarian cooking. This is one of her epic curry recipes that is extremely easy to make, it's ridiculously tasty and it packs less than 200 calories per serving. Not bad eh! If you've not heard of garam masala before, it's a spice blend that's a base many Indian dishes to bring flavour and warmth. You can buy it in most supermarkets or grind your own if you're adventurous and want to be super authentic. 

If you're wanting to boost the protein content of this meal you could add in some beans to keep it vegetarian or some precooked chicken chunks to turn it into a chicken and lentil delight.

Once you've tried this dish, make sure to give our lentil chilli recipe a try too. You won't be disappointed!
