Coconut and Green Lentil Dahl – The Happy Pear

This is one of our favourite dishes to make. We’ve been hopping off dahl for years now and it’s just hard to beat when you’re looking for a hearty wholesome dish to treat yourself to at dinner time.

500g green lentils
1 tin coconut milk
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 red onion
2 garlic cloves
½ thumb-sized piece of ginger
1 large sweet potato
1 carrot
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
4 tsp curry powder
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp sweet paprika
4 tbsp tamari/soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
Cherry tomatoes
1 pak choi
1.5 litres of water

-Chop onions (we used red simply for colour but regular onions work just as well).
-Heat pan on medium heat. Add 2 tbsp oil. Add chopped onion and stir occasionally.
-Roughly chop the garlic and grate the ginger and add to pot.
-Slice your sweet potato and carrot into medium size pieces and add to your pan along with 1 teaspoon of salt.
-Add your four measured spices into the heated mixture and stir it around for 2-3 minutes.
-Next up, the sauce! Pour one tin of coconut milk and one tin of chopped tomatoes into the pan, stir all the ingredients together and cook for 2 minutes.
-Add in 1.5 litres of water, the lentils, 4tbsp of tamari (or soy sauce) and the juice of one lime to the dish.
-Bring your pan to the boil and allow to simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring every now and again until all the lentils are cooked.
-Finally, to make this dish vibrant looking and to add even more nutritional value, chop one head of pak choi and add this, along with the whole cherry tomatoes, to your pot.

All the best,
Dave & Steve.
