Easy Red Lentil Dahl

by @scoopwholefoods

This red lentil dahl is a delicious, protein-rich dish that feels like a hug in a bowl. Perfect for winter but you can make it all year round. It also keeps well in the fridge or freezer so you can meal prep a big batch for the week ahead! We served our dahl with our chickpea flatbreads (you can find the recipe here on our app!)

  • 1 cup red split lentils
  • ½ onion diced
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 tsp garam masala

  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar

Sauté the onion, minced ginger and garlic with ghee in a saucepan on medium heat until onions are translucent. Once onions are translucent add in the dried spices and cook until aromatic. Add in the red lentils and vegetable stock and cook covered for 5-10 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed. Pour in diced tomatoes, coconut milk and coconut sugar and cook for a further 5-10 minutes. Squeeze ½ lime juice into the dahl and stir thoroughly. Serve with cooked rice of your choice, flatbreads and top with yoghurt
