How to make Red Lentil Dahl


Mix the ginger garlic, curry powder, coriander, garam masala and crushed red pepper in small bowl and set aside.


Heat a large soup pot over medium heat. Add your oil, onions and celery and cook on medium high heat for about 2 minutes until vegetables are fragrant and translucent.


Turn down heat and add the ginger, garlic and spice mix and cook on low heat for about 1 minute, allowing the spices to “bloom” until they become fragrant.


Add the lentils, vegetable stock, salt, diced tomatoes and coconut milk.


Bring up to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer. Cook with a lid on for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until lentils are soft.


Serve as a soup, or over brown rice with some steamed veggies, or with naan or roti! I chose to have ours as a “stew” over brown rice.
