This high protein and low calorie dish is a perfect to your regular boring bag lunches. With a flavor that isn’t too over powering, it’s sure to appeal to a wide range of palates (even ones that might not think they like ‘curry’ type dishes).
Combine together the sautéd onions, curry paste, lentils and water. Simmer for about 30 minutes, or until lentils are tender and all the liquid is absorbed.
Add tomatoes and salt, and simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve and garnish with almonds and parsley.
