5 A DAY: 5
Cook the wholegrain rice according to packet instructions.
Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat.
Add the onion and curry powder and cook until the onion is starting to go golden brown. Then add the garlic and cook for a further minute.
Add the frozen mixed vegetables, tinned tomatoes, dried red lentils and water. Bring to the boil, cover with a saucepan lid and simmer on a low heat for 25 minutes until the lentils and vegetables are cooked, stirring occasionally. You may need to add more water to prevent sticking.
Serve with the rice.
You can also substitute the rice for couscous if you fancy something a little different.
