Red Lentil Dahl with Broccoli

Serves 4


The easiest way to make healthy meals at home is to make one-pot bowls like this one that is full of flavour and healthy nutrients.

For any one with allergies, intolerances or special dietary needs, this dish is vegan friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and oh so tasty.



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.
