The Best Dahl Vegan Staple Foods

31st July 2020

This Dahl is always a refuge in the storm of life, what I especially love is how it really takes hardly any work, and that everybody I make it for always loves it.

So really there is very little to say apart from ‘The Dahl is Good’ – make it :).

Lets dive right in, ingredients below:

Serves 4

  • 1 cup of red split lentils
  • 1/4 cup of sun-dried onions
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of ground coriander
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons of mustard seeds
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 400g tin of coconut cream
  • 750ml of vegetable stock
  • 2 teaspoons of sea-salt
  • lots of freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 very ripe tomatoes, skins removed and chopped roughly

Add all the above ingredients to a pot and let it get to a slow simmer – stirring occasionally, and allowing it to cook for 45min, or even up to an hour. You may want to a little add liquid if you like it a bit ‘saucier’.

Serve with quinoa or brown basmati, and a roti perhaps. Garnish with oven roasted chickpeas and a little onion, spinach and tomato salad will liven it up.

Happy cooking
