Tasty Dahl Delight!

This is a version of a traditional dahl recipe that our family modified one night based on what we had around the house. It was a last minute thrown together meal, and I must say that it was delicious!

What You Need:
  • 2 cups dried red lentils
  • 1 Tbl olive oil
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium-large onion, diced
  • 1 cup peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 Tbl. tumeric
  • 1 Tbl dried ginger
  • 1 jalapeno, diced (this can be left out or decreased for non-spice lovers)
What You Do:
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add onion and sautee for about 10 minutes
  • While onions are cooking, add lentils and 4 cups water to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then simmer until lentils are tender and water has been absorbed.
  • After onions become translucent, add tumeric and ginger and still for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, jalapeno, peas and coconut milk. Simmer.
  • Once lentils are ready, add to the onion mixture. Let simmer until all veggies are tender.
  • Best served over brown rice. This makes about 4-6 servings.
