Dahl-ling! Quick and easy Vegan Dahl recipe.
You will need:
One chopped onion.
Two cloves of garlic, crushed.
Two tablespoons of olive oil.
One cup of yellow split peas.
One cup of red lentils.
One tin of crushed tomatoes.
One can of coconut milk.
400 mls of water.
1 tablespoon of veggie salt or 2 Tablespoons of soy sauce or tamari.
1 tablespoon each of cumin, coriander and turmeric.
Fresh chopped tomato for garnish.
In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onions and spices on medium heat until translucent. Add the spices and stir. Then, add the lentils and peas and stir for about three minutes. Add the tomato, coconut milk, water, veggie salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and then let simmer with the lid mostly on for about half an hour to forty minutes, until the peas are soft. Garnish with fresh coriander and tomatoes.
If you serve it with rice, it's apparently a 'complete' meal- so good for you and yummy too!
