Green Pea Dahl


300g green split peas (pre-soaked, drained and washed)

3 medium carrots

1 large leek

4 garlic gloves

2tbsp olive oil (for cooking)

400ml can of coconut milk

1tsp fennel seeds

1tsp cumin

1tsp smoked paprika


Fresh parsley or coriander (optional)


Heat a pan with some olive oil. Chop the leek, the garlic, grate the carrots (I used a food processor) and add the mix to the pan.

Add the spices, the salt and stir well and let it fry for 5 minutes.

Add green peas and the can of coconut milk, add some more salt and stir well.

Bring the dahl to the boil, then reduce to simmer for 40-45 minutes, until peas are cooked through.

Top up with fresh herbs of your choice, humous or chilli flakes.
