  • Step 1

    Add the lentils and the quinoa in to a pot. Add the coconutmilk, water, the spices, the salt and the tomatopaste to the pot. Set the heat on medium and put on the lid. Let it cook for 15 minutes.

    After 15 minutes, take of the lid and turn the head down to low. Stir and make sure it doesn't stick to the pan. Let it sit on low heat for another 5 minutes until some liquid has evaporated.
