Red Lentil and Sweet Potato Dahl


  1. 1 cup red lentils
  2. 1 sweet potato
  3. 2 cups water
  4. 1 small yellow onion
  5. 3 cloves of garlic
  6. 1 thumb knob ginger, or ginger spice - to taste
  7. 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
  8. 1 - 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  9. 2 tablespoon good quality curry powder
  10. salt and pepper to taste


  1. Chop the onion, dice the potato, mince the garlic and ginger.
  2. Heat a pot to medium heat with the oil. Add in the onion and potato. Season with a touch of curry and salt. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add in the pepper and the ginger. Sauté for another 2 minutes. Then add in the garlic, a touch more salt and curry. Sauté for about 1 minute. Add in the lentils and coat.
  4. Next, add in water and the tomatoes. Stir, season with more curry, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Wait to add more salt until the end.
  5. Taste to see if the lentils are soft. If so, add in a touch more salt and adjust the curry seasoning to your liking. Serve with some warm brown or wild rice - or keep it low carb and serve with cauliflower rice.
