Green Curry with Tofu, Lentils & Veggies with Curcuma Rice

I love curry―it’s so simple to make and no matter what veggies you use (even if they’ve been hanging out in the fridge for too long), it always ends up tasting great!

It’s a really great dish and works perfectly as either a lunch or a dinner.
