Red Lentils Dahl


300g red split lentils (washed and drained)

1 carrot

1 courgette

1 large onion

4 garlic gloves

1 handful of spinach

400ml can of coconut milk

1tsp caraway seeds

1tsp curcumin

1tsp smoked paprika


Fresh parsley or coriander (optional)


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

Add all the spices and salt, stir well and let it fry for 3-5 minutes.

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

Bring the dahl to the boil, then reduce to simmer for 30-40 minutes, until lentils are cooked through.

Switch off the heat and stir in a handful of fresh spinach.

Top up with fresh herbs of your choice.
