* I've adapted this recipe slightly to make it 100% vegan and refined sugar free.
In a bowl mix the potato and oil together. Put onto an oven tray and bake at 180ºC for 30 minutes or until just getting soft.
Put the cauliflower in a pot with some boiling water and cook for 5 minutes or until just starting to get soft. Drain immediately.
In a pot or pan, saute the onion, garlic, ginger, capsicum and seeds in oil for 5 minutes or until the onion is soft and the seeds start to pop.
Stir in the coriander and turmeric for ~30 seconds to activate the flavours.
Add the lentils and boiling water. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the lentils are soft.
Add the coconut nectar/date puree, salt and sweet chilli sauce or chilli.
Blend the cashew nuts and water together into a runny cream and add to the dahl.
Add the cooked potato and cauliflower.
Serve on brown rice with a garnish of coriander. (Buffy's note - I'd also add a side of greens to this beauty to balance it out to the Perfect Plant-Based Plate - lightly steamed broccoli, green beans or a handful of raw baby spinach would be just lovely!).
