Healthy Lentil and Rhubarb Curry

With the father of my children, we have a subscription to a local farm that lovingly prepares a weekly basket of seasonal fruits and vegetables for us. This time, we received a stunning, flamboyant red rhubarb. So, I relied on the recipe in French from swissmilk.ch to make this super healthy and delicious dish. Ideally, this recipe should be served with basmati rice.
