Super simple slow cooker Lentil Curry recipe

Healthy Slow Cooker Red Lentil Curry


  • 250 g red lentils
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • pinch of chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds roughly crushed
  • 2 cm fresh root ginger peeled
  • 400 g can chopped tomatoes
  • 300 ml boiling vegetable stock
  • To be added later:
  • 1 small head of spring greens or savoy cabbage shredded
  • 1 lime
  • handful of coriander leaves chopped


  • Put all the vegetables, spices, seasoning and stock into the slow cooker as described above. Once the initial cooking time is up, you literally place the shredded greens on top and let them steam, covered, for about 20 minutes. Then mix into the curry, and serve with lime wedges and coriander leaves sprinkled over the top. We serve this with a WeightWatchers garlic and coriander Nan Bread for an extra 4 points.
