1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
Pinch of chili flakes (more if you like it hot)
¼ cup diced red onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup red lentils
3½ cups no sodium added vegetable broth
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 small head broccoli, cut into bit-sized pieces (approximately 3 cups)
Handful of cilantro, chopped
2 cups cooked rice to serve (½ cup per person)
Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the spices, cooking for 1 minute to release the flavors.
Add the onions, garlic and broccoli, cooking for approximately 3 minutes to soften the broccoli.
Stir in the lentils, lime zest and juice and stir to combine. Add the stock, cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until lentils are soft. Stir in the cilantro right before serving.
Add ½ cup cooked rice to each bowl and top with red lentil Dahl.
