Easy curried lentils and spinach

This is my kind of car camping meal- quick, easy, cheap, filling, and nutritionally dense. You can cook it in a pressure cooker and make it even faster, too


  • One cup dry brown lentils
  • One can coconut milk
  • 1 Tbs good quality curry powder
  • 1/2 bag frozen spinach, thawed and drained (or you can use fresh!)
  • 1 cup water (for pressure cooker) or 1 1/4 cup water (for saucepan)
  • Salt, to taste (in this recipe I actually like using soy sauce because it packs a nice umami punch. I used about 1Tbs in this recipe)


  1. Combine all ingredients except salt in a saucepan or pressure cooker.

  1. Seal pressure cooker (if using) and put over high heat. If using saucepan, bring to a boil then cover and reduce to a simmer
  2. Cook time is 5 minutes after pressurization (for pressure cooker) or 20 minutes for saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding water as needed
  3. Salt to taste and enjoy!
