Nourishing Sweet Potato Dahl
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 cup red lentils (soaked in water for 6 hours or overnight as this helps for proper digestion)
  • 2 cups sweet potato chopped
  • 2 cups low salt liquid vegetable stock
  • 1 cup organic coconut milk (I used Nakula)
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 medium red chilli chopped (if you like it spicy)
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • Spices//
  • 1 tbs ginger grated
  • 1 tbs indian curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • Topping suggestions//
  • Fresh coriander
  • Lime juice
  1. In a large pot, heat oil and cook onions and garlic for a few minutes with all the spices to enhance the flavours.
  2. Rinse the lentils under water then add to the pot along with all remaining ingredients (except spinach) and let simmer on a low heat for approximately 30-40mins or until sweet potato is very soft.
  3. Turn off heat, stir through the spinach and with a wooden spoon start mashing the sweet potato to get the dalh nice and thick. Let it sit for 5-10 mins then serve on its own or with rice (my favourite is brown basmati).
  4. Topped with lime juice and fresh coriander!
  5. Enjoy the goodness xx
