The weather has turned chilly here in the Sunshine State, was able to turn off the a/c and actually open the windows yesterday! It's not cold by the rest of the country's standards, but at least we can dig out our favorite sweaters for a day or two. Of course, when the temperatures drop, we all want warm & cozy comfort food, which is where this next dish comes in.
Red Lentil Thai Chili. Yep, another Thai dish for you, you are going to love this one! It uses two of my favorite foods - red lentils & sweet potatoes, both lurking in my pantry, just begging to be eaten!
This recipe comes from Post Punk Kitchen, Isa's recipes are always a sure bet! I tweaked the original a bit, leaving out the oil and only using 1/2 a can of coconut milk to cut down on fat/calories. I also used my Crock-pot instead of stove top, allowing me to dump everything into the crock in the morning and forget about it 'til almost dinnertime. I posted this at my other blog a while back, it's definitely worth a repeat performance!
I hope you're enjoying your day, whatever the weather!
