Coconut-Red Lentil Dahl
Dahl is a wonderful source of plant-based protein, and thanks to the anti-inflammatory ingredients such as turmeric and garlic, it makes for a great healthy dinner. But good-for-you talk aside, this dish is simply delicious, which is reason enough to enjoy it!
|Finely chop the onion, garlic and ginger root and fry in a nonstick pan with a splash of water until softened.|
|Add the coconut milk, water, lentils and spices and stir well. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, making sure all the lentils are softened. Taste again and season as required. Top the dahl with fresh coriander.|
|To make the cauliflower rice, place the chopped cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until broken down into rice-sized pieces. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice, salt and pepper. Cover and cook until heated through (4-5 minutes). Remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork.|
|Serve the dahl hot with some cauliflower rice (or brown rice if you prefer).|
