Curry Lentils with Rhubarb

  • Servings : 4-6
  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Cook Time : 30m
  • Ready In : 40m

Someone gave us a whole bundle of rhubarb and since we made a pie last week, we started research/brainstorming for savory rhubarb dishes. We were able to compile a few different recipe ideas we found online into something quick, tasty, and healthy. You should be able to find rhubarb in the fresh or frozen section of any supermarket. It is better fresh, but frozen will work in the winter months or in a pinch. If you can’t locate any, this dish will stand on it’s own and is definitely work making sans rhubarb. Also, there is a lot of spices in this but if you don’t have many of them, it’s ok to omit them except for the curry, brown sugar, cumin, and of course salt/pepper. It will also save you money to leave out some of the more rare spices and will still taste good, just not as tasty!

EST Cost: $6.50


  • 1.5 Cupes Dried Lentils
  • 2 Stalks Rhubarb
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Large Sweet Potato or Yam
  • 5 Pieces of Red Chard
  • 1 Clove of Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Curry
  • 1 Bay Leave
  • 1 Tbsp Cumin
  • 1 Tbsp Mustard Seed
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger
  • Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • Pepper to Taste
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil


Step 1

In a saucepan boil the lentils and 4.5 cups of water and one bay leaf. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes. Slice the sweet potato and boil in another saucepan for about 20 minutes.

Step 2

While the lentils and sweet potato are boiling, cut up the garlic, red pepper, rhubarb and chard.

Step 3

After lentils and the potato are down, heat the olive oil, mustard seed, and garlic in a medium pan. Cook until mustard seeds start to pop. Add in the rhubarb and peppers.

Step 4

Slice the sweet potato into cubes and add to veggies. Add in the lentils and all spices, cook for about 7 minutes.

Step 5

Add in chard and cook until soft. Server by itself or with quinoa or rice.
