    This Vegan Red Lentil Curry is a fan favorite and the BEST lentil curry you will ever try! It’s easy and quick, making it a perfect weeknight dinner! Plus, it’s creamy and indulgent but made with wholesome vegan ingredients!

    Ingredients

    • 2 inch piece of fresh ginger, (peeled and minced or grated)
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh turmeric, (or 1 teaspoon ground turmeric)

    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

    • Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
