Pumpkin Lentil Curry

Central Indiana food pantries have seen a dramatic increase in demand over the last few months due to skyrocketing grocery prices, general inflation, and the recent spike in gas prices. Nearly 1 million Hoosiers are food insecure, meaning they don’t have consistent access to nutritious and affordable food, and one in six Indiana residents goes to bed hungry every night.

Each year, FOX59 and CBS4 team up with Midwest Food Bank and Gleaners Food Bank for an initiative called "Pack the Pantries." They are requesting financial donations, rather than food donations, because Gleaners and Midwest can buy in bulk at wholesale prices, which allows them to stretch the dollar much further.

A donation of just $1 provides about 5 meals. A $10 gift provides 50 meals and $25 covers 125 meals. Find out more information about how to donate here.

This pumpkin lentil curry recipe is one of two recipes I developed for the Pack the Pantries initiative. I spoke with representatives from Gleaners about which items they have trouble moving off their shelves. Gleaners told me they have an abundance of canned pumpkin, lentils, and frozen carrots because shoppers don’t always know how to prepare these ingredients.

Many people associate canned pumpkin with Thanksgiving, but it's important to note that it's a squash with many health benefits. It's high in fiber, potassium, and beta carotene. It's a great thickener in many recipes, and it also adds a little sweetness. You can generally replace sweet potatoes or butternut squash in recipes with canned pumpkin.

This recipe also uses lentils, which are a great source of fiber, folic acid, and potassium. Lentils are high in protein and low in fat, which makes them a healthy and affordable meat substitute. Often with recipes that use dried lentils, you have to soak the lentils first. But that isn’t the case with the Pumpkin Lentil Curry recipe because the lentils will cook as the curry simmers. You can serve this curry with rice, additional vegetables, naan, or just by itself.

I also want to point out that you can make this curry on a hot plate if you don't have access to a stove in a kitchen.

  1. I was late on paying my furniture bill 3 months in a row and now my credit score dropped from 745 to 368 and that was devastating. I needed someone to help me improve my score to get it back to the regular limit. Thank you 'Remoterepair @ clerk . Com' for proving to be a good credit agent and helping me clear up the debts thereby improving my credit scores.

  2. On a clear score, my credit was less than 463, and I was slightly skeptical but decided to give this an opportunity.

I will refer him to any of my friends or family with any bit of credit discrepancies.

  11. I got an email from Experian saying my score went up, so I decided to check my scores on Credit Karma and my scores has dropped 56 points from 600 to 544. I went to check what happened and there’s no changes listed. Now I just feel defeated. I just don’t want to bother anymore. I’ve been keeping my credit use under 30%, paying my card off every month, been setting all my bills up for auto pay. I’ve been trying so hard and it’s all for nothing. Thank to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST who came through for me. I’ve been working so hard with them to rebuild my credit, and seeing that score goes up again, that made me so proud. Within 5 days of working with PINNACLE they increased my score to TU 819, EX 810, EQ 816. All negative items have been removed; credit card debt marked as paid on time. I sincerely recommend PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST to anyone out their who has similar issues with me. You can get them on: pinnaclecreditspecialist@gmail.com OR call them on +1 (585) 466 4373.

  13. We can’t forget CYBER CREDIT GURU in a hurry. My husband was declared bankruptcy in 2019 (and we later on realized that the mobile home in which we lived was included). While I had a debt of $26k and about 9 negative items on my report. As a result, we couldn’t get a mortgage until we had our reports fixed. We were frustrated, there was absolutely nothing we could do until we encountered CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM / +1 (650) 439 0624 via a positive review about them on a blog. Today we are in a house of our own, all negative items removed and score raised from 430, 470 respectively to 782 each in 6 days. Thanks to team CyberGuru!

  14. At the point I urgently needed a dental procedure that needed to be done for $2500 it was impossible to get approved for a big enough limit credit card to cover the cost of the dental procedure because of my outstanding debts, derogation marks inquiries and collections. Raylink came through for me by removing all derogatory marks, inquiries and collections, and this month I successfully completed the dental procedure having gotten approved of a high limit credit card. Thank you, God’s sent.

  15. 4 years ago, I was freshly clean from heroin, and had just gotten out of jail, a state away from everything and everyone is ever known, only had the clothes on my back, an expired ID in an otherwise empty wallet, and was looking at a credit score around 520. Married, 2 years old, middle management at a fortune 50 Corp. Thanks to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST who came as an angel for me and fixed my credit score within 5 days, negative items, credit card debt and hard inquiries has been removed and resolved and I’m happy now because it really helped my FICO score got increase to 819. I’m going to apply for an AMEX. It’s something I’ve wanted to get for years, a big goal I’ve been working towards, (that and buying a house). And I finally am comfortable enough with my score to pull the trigger on it. Thanks to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST I’m really proud of them right now. You can reach via: pinnaclecreditspecialist@gmail.com / +1 585 466 4373.
