Goodbye to canned soup and over-salted mediocre take out. This Simple Curry Stew tastes gourmet and only takes 20 minutes to put together requiring one pot, one pan, a knife and a grater. The vegetable saute’ adds depth while the rich flavors of Temple Taste Curries elegantly compliment the red lentils. The coconut cream and ginger just add a little bit of that restaurant flare that will have you coming back for more. And with time for the flavors to meld, it gets even better the second day. Enjoy decadence that is perfectly suited for a Cleanse and Rejuvenation plan.
