Aubergine and Red Lentil Curry

Greetings team and how are you all today? I’m doing pretty great I think, I mean it’s a weekend so what’s not to love? It’s been a while since we shared a recipe with you all, so today I’m to share a recent addition to our cooking repertoire – an aubergine and red lentil curry. It’s once incredibly dish of veggie goodness, that’s delicious, plus simple to make and not to mention super-cheap as well. Basically the trifecta of a brilliant recipe, am I right, or am I right?

This delicious aubergine and red lentil curry was introduced to us by the glorious people at Oddbox, when they delivered a recent box that contained an aubergine. I’m not going to lie, I love that the box comes with two or three recipes that vary depending on what’s in the box – it’s super helpful! Anyway we’ve since made this a couple of times and its true love. So hopefully you all love it too. Shall we dive straight in?
