Tomato pineapple red lentil recipe with coconut cumin sauce

Whenever I have a craving for sweet and sour sauce, this is my go-to meal. It’s deceptively simple, but amazingly addictive.  You get that perfect blend of salty and sweet – you know, the kind that food labs concoct to get us to eat more… of anything! Yet when you attack your plate repeatedly because you can’t get enough of this, you’re also doing your body a big favour. While technically a savoury meal, the pineapple and tomato paste work together to raise the sweetness profile until you just.can’t.stop.eating.it.

Every ingredient in this dish is a star in it’s own right. They’re all heavy hitters on my heart-healthy shopping lists, and each one heals the body in it’s own way. The red lentils in particular are amazing little health warriors, making their way through your system, cleaning the whole place up. I love cooking with red lentils because they take no prep, you just dump them into the pot with some water and 20 minutes later you’re ready to eat. The original health food in a hurry.
