Sweet potato and lentil curry

Filed under:

sp-curry1Another classic from the Ecotricity design team for this week’s Meat Free Monday meal suggestion. This time it’s a child friendly curry from Angus.

Interesting fact – sweet potatoes have huge amounts of Vitamin A and also Beta Carotene (slightly more than carrots!).

Enjoy!
