Reducing Food Waste- Lentil Pasta Curry Recipe!


The other day I found myself with overcooked lentil pasta. Instead of throwing it away, I thought how could I turn this mistake into a tasty recipe! What about a Curry?! This is by no means a traditional curry recipe, but it has all the flavors and definitely does the trick when you are still hungry and don’t want to start from scratch.

I am going to be starting a new series on my blog that talks all about the creative recipes that I make out of items that I would normally throw away!

This recipe is for a single portion!

 The mushy Lentil Pasta that


Lentil Pasta

1 tablespoon of coconut butter (or 1/3 cup of coconut milk)

1/4 teaspoon of turmeric

1 teaspoon of curry

1 teaspoon of masala spice

1/4 teaspoon of veggie broth paste

a pinch of salt and pepper to taste



(I cooked this in a microwave since I don’t have a stove, but the recipe I have made it so that you can cook it on a stove)

Add the lentils, coconut butter or milk and spices into a pan on medium heat. Once it has combined add about 1/4 cup of water to thin out the mixture and the veggie broth. Continue to cook on low until desire texture.

Serve over rice and veggies! Enjoy!
