I love Thai-style curries. Here, I am using some traditional Thai ingredients, like red curry paste and coconut milk, as my inspiration for this spin on a red curry.



  1. In a large Dutch oven or pot, heat the butter or ghee over medium heat. Add the onion and carrot. Cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the ginger, garlic and red curry paste and cook until aromatic, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the coconut milk and stock. Add the lentils and simmer until the curry is thickened and the lentils are tender but not mushy, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chard, spinach and fish sauce and cook until the greens are wilted, a few more minutes.
  3. Serve over the rice and garnish with the almonds, mint, pomegranate and lime wedges.
