Crockpot Red Lentil Curry

Ohhh my lentils. I just love me somma them beans. Especially when they’re in a big crockpot full of red lentil curry.

This version is so simple – just toss everything in the crockpot. Easy, healthy, and full of flavor.


4 cups regular brown lentils (I used maasor lentils this time)
2 onions, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced ginger
4 tablespoons butter (optional)
5 tablespoons red curry paste
1 tablespoon garam masala
1 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoon sugar
a few good shakes of cayenne pepper
2 cans tomato puree (29 ounces each)
1 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
