Lentil & Coconut Dahl vegan & coconut free - usually served with garlic, serves 4-6. Ingredients: 2 x white onions  2-3 sticks of celery  1 x butternut squash 5cm nub of ginger 2-3 garlic cloves  200g washed lentils 1 litre vegetable stock   1 x tin of coconut milk 1/2 tbsp ground cumin 1/2 1tbsp ground coriander  1/2 1tbsp ground turmeric  2-3 cardamom pods  1-2 bay leaves 1 tsp of harissa  1 x small bunch of fresh coriander   *garlic butter (optional)* approx 100g softened butter  4 x garlic cloves   fresh parsley & thyme salt & pepper

Lentil & Coconut Dahl Method: step 1: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Chop up the butternut squash into 3-5 cm cubes and place onto baking tray (once the oven has heated), add a drizzle of oil with salt & pepper and roast for about 25-30 mins until soft and brown at edges.   step 2: Whilst the butternut squash is roasting, chop your onions, celery and ginger (and any other veg you need to use up). Add about 1-2 tbsp of oil into a pan, once hot add your onions, sweat your onions down until soft, on med to low heat then add your celery, garlic & ginger and cook for further 5/10 then add your spices and cook for another 2-3 mins.   step 3: Then add your lentils and evenly coat in the spice mix. Add in your coconut milk & stock and bring to boil (making sure to stir every now and then so the lentils don’t stick) once boiled reduce down to a simmer for as long as possible- longer the better!  step 4: Once the butternut squash is cooked, add this to your Dahl and stir through- take off heat, chop up some coriander and stir through, we sometimes use spinach just depending on what we have to use up. Remember to take out your bay leaves and cardamom pods before serving..  Grab a bowl, your Dahl is ready to serve! top with a bit of coconut yoghurt or homemade tzatziki, pumpkin seeds and fresh coriander and pickled onions and serve with garlic pitta and enjoy! (option: Warm up your Pitta then spread over your homemade garlic butter).
