Coconut Lentil Stew with Kale

  • 16 oz. coconut milk
  • 16 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 cube (2 oz) vegetable bouillon
  • 1/2 Tbs curry paste
  • 2 cups red lentils
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Additional optional vegetables: bell pepper, mushrooms, squash, carrots


  1. In a large stovetop pot on high heat, add in the onion and garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes and add in a splash of water to prevent burning. Then add the curry paste.
  2. If sautéing additional vegetables, add in now and cook for 7-10 minutes.
  3. Add in the lentils and stir for 1 minute.
  4. Then, add in the coconut milk, tomato sauce, vegetable bouillon, and seasoning.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil cooking on medium-medium/high, stirring frequently to prevent the stew from sticking to the bottom.
  6. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer. Cover with a lid.
  7. Cook the stew for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add about 1/4-1/2 more water if needed if the stew is too thick.
  8. Then, add the kale to the top of the stew. Do not stir it in. Cover with a lid and allow it to wilt for 5 minutes. Then, stir in and remove the stew from heat.
  9. Serve fresh and enjoy.
