Lentil and mushroom curry – gluten free, vegetarian and vegan!

This is very quick and easy to make.  With chopping time, you can have this on the table in half an hour tops.  The curry paste I use does not have any dairy or any shrimp paste, so it is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.  You will get four bowls out of this so it really needs an accompaniment.  I served it with Quinoa and Haloumi salad.
