Healthy Red Lentil and Vegetable Coconut Dhal Recipe

Coconut Lentil DahlRed Lentil and Vegetable Coconut Dhal. Warming, filling and satisfying. This is full of nourishment and feel good ingredients. Plus Vegan and gluten free too.

This is one of my all time favourite dishes to make for lunch. It’s quick easy and delicious. Plus you can make it in a big batch at the beginning of the week and simply heat up to enjoy. Plus it tastes even better the next day after the spices have time to marinate.

Working 9-5 in London plus running a blog and social media accounts is pretty time consuming which is exactly why I love recipes like these. I have a few staple healthy lunch recipes up my sleeve that  I batch make and I quickly heat up on my lunch break.

Full of vegan protein and fibre from the lentils and loaded with the vegetables, this healthy recipe is hearty and comforting and will keep you going all day.

The Ecomil Coconut paste makes this so creamy. Bursting with flavour from the garlic, ginger, turmeric and cumin this is one you’ll make again and again.

This is totally customisable so feel free to add your favourite veggies and include any extra spices.

I really hope you enjoy this Healthy Red Lentil and Vegetable Coconut Dhal Recipe.
