Red Lentil Curry With Black Tahini and Roasted Cashews [Vegan]

If you enjoy recipes like this, we highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App, it's available for both Android and iPhone and has free and paid versions. The app is loaded with thousands of allergy-friendly & vegan recipes/cooking tips, has hundreds of search filters and features like bookmarking, meal plans and more! The app shows you how having diet/health/food preferences can be full of delicious abundance rather than restrictions!

This quick curry is simply delicious, super easy and inexpensive to make, plus leftovers can be reheated for up to three days. Actually, I find it tastes better once set in the fridge overnight and all the flavors are absorbed into the dish. You can hide as many veggies and legumes as you like, depending on what satisfies you best.
