Vegan Thai Green Curry with Red Lentils, Green Beans, & Coriander-Mango Salsa

Vegan Thai Green Curry

Spring is finally here! To celebrate, last night I welcomed the season with an appropriately-coloured vegan curry.Vegan Green Curry

Easy to make and super filling, this low-fat, vegan, and gluten-free dinner packs a protein-filled punch with red lentils and tofu. Green beans add a lovely crunch, while sweet potato adds a natural, low-glycemic index sweetness. Top it off with a coriander-mango salsa and a dash of lime, and you’ve got a lean, clean, and green dinner. Thai Green Curry
