Peanut Butter Dal

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups red lentils

1l stock

3 tbsp good quality peanut butter (preferably just 100% nuts)

1 large white onion

1 large sweet potato

 

Spices

4 cloves garlic

1 ½ tbsp cumin

1 ½ tbsp ground coriander

½ tsp paprika

Large pinch salt

1tsp coconut oil

 

Optional:

Fresh coriander

1 tbsp DF yogurt

1 tsp chilli flakes

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180ºc

Slice the sweet potato into approx. 5cm thick cubes, drizzle in a little oil and a generous pinch of cumin then bake for around 25 minutes

Finely dice the onion then gently fry in the coconut oil for around 6 minutes until softened

Mince the garlic then add to the onions

Once the garlic is cooked add the lentils followed by the litre of stock, then the dried spices

After the lentils have absorbed most of the water, add the peanut butter and allow to form a thick creamy lentil mix

Taste test, adding salt, maybe a little dash more of spice

Take the sweet potato out of the oven and serve on top of the dal

Sprinkle chilli flakes over, then finish with a spoon of yogurt & fresh coriander

Enjoy!
