I promise you with recipes this good – you won’t ever feel like your missing out.

Coconut Dahl

3 tbs coconut oil (or similar)
1 onions, diced.
1 deseeded green chilli chopped (optional)
1/4 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tomato chopped
225g red lentils split
250ml coconut milk
Basil leaves to serve

Heat oil in a saucepan and place over medium heat.
Add the diced onions and chilli and cook until softened.
Stir in tumeric and cumin and cook until aromatic (approx one minute)
Increase heat and add lentils, coconut milk, tomato and 750ml of water. Bring to boil and then reduce to a low simmer, stirring often. Cook for 25 – 30 minutes until lentils are soft and mushy. Season to taste.

Top with Basil and serve.

Just like I said – this is just one of many awesome recipes I’m sharing this week. This simple dahl can take the fuss out of cooking the family meal for us cleansers – just add some baked chicken and the whole tribe will be happy!
