Zucchini, Lentil and Coconut Curry

This is a perfect, nourishing, easy to make curry for any night of the week! I just love making this Zucchini lentil and coconut curry on nights when I need something healthy and norishing, but also quick and easy too!

It is so simple to make (which is a win in my book anyday!) and it is mild too, but you can make it spicier if you want to - it's really up to you!

It gives you a huge serve of your 5 a day in one go too.

(kids not keen on curry? try this slow cooker meal from little peeps eats)

If you need to sub other ingredients in you can - add or remove vegetables as you like!

I really enjoy this with some thick toast and lots of butter, but you can serve it with rice, papadums, cauliflower rice, zoodles. It's totally up to you!
