Citrus Curry


I’m not usually a huge fan of curry because I have a very low spice tolerance, but this sweet Citrus Curry is to-die-for! I’ve made it the past two weeks because I can’t get enough of it.. Yes, it is on the milder side but the sweetness of the oranges compliments the other spices so nicely.



  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 3/4 c red lentils, rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 orange, diced
  • cilantro


  1. In a large saucepan/skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat
  2. Add the onion. Saute for a few minutes until translucent
  3. Add the garlic, sweet potato, and red pepper. Saute for a few more minutes
  4. Stir in the spices and red lentils. Stir until the veggies and lentils are coated in the spices
  5. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and cover pot with lid. Allow to simmer for approximately 15 minutes
  6. Stir in the diced oranges and cilantro. Cook for another 5 minutes
