Forget take-out. This vegetarian lentil and garbanzo bean curry is on the table in under 10 minutes thanks to a handful of ingredients (just 4!) from your neighborhood Trader Joe’s. It’ll also cost you less than $4 per serving! Look for Trader Joe’s Melodius Blend, a combo of cooked green and red lentils with green garbanzo beans, in the frozen foods section.
- 15 ounce jar Trader Joe’s Masala Simmer Sauce
- 13.5 ounce can Trader Joe’s Reduced Fat Coconut Milk
- 2-12 ounce bags Trader Joe’s frozen Melodius Blend
- Trader Joe’s frozen Organic Jasmine Rice (2 pouches from 1 box)
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the masala simmer sauce and coconut milk until combined. Bring to a simmer and stir in both bags of Melodius Blend. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until lentils and garbanzo beans are heated through.
In the meantime, follow package instructions to heat rice. You’ll need two pouches for this recipe. Each pouch heats for 3 minutes in the microwave.
Dish rice into bowls and serve topped with curry.
