‘This is the least appetising picture you’ve put on Instagram’ was a comment from one of my friends yesterday. Despite appearances, this tasted delicious. A sprig of coriander would have perked it up aesthetically and in taste, unfortunately my local Tesco Express barely stocks anything let alone fresh coriander.

1) chop and fry an onion in olive oil.

2) once softened, add mushrooms and a minced garlic clove and fry for another couple of mins.

3) add 2 cups of veg stock, 1 cup of green lentils, 1 tsp minced ginger, 2 dessert spoons of green Thai curry paste and a handful of green beans.

4) bring to boil then turn down and simmer with a lid on for 15 mins.

5) stir through a tin of coconut milk, pop lid on for another 5 min.

Garnish with coriander, ignore the grey green colour and enjoy 🙂

ps get your coconut milk in the world food section, it’s waaaay cheaper.
