Recipe | Low-Fodmap Capsicum, Coconut & Lentil Curry

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

This recipe is one of my favourites. It is a staple in my rotation of student friendly meals. It's quick, easy and doesn't break the budget! I usually make a large quantity, save a portion for lunch the next day, and then freeze the rest. With no onion or garlic, this recipe is tummy friendly but still unbelievably tasty.
