4 c potatoes, chopped into 2cm (1in) cubes
2 tsp extra virgin coconut oil*
3 c cauliflower, cut into small florets
1 1/2c onion, finely diced (~1 onion)
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed
2 tbsp ginger, pureed or finely chopped
1c red capsicum (bell pepper), roughly diced (~1 capsicum)
2 tbsp brown or yellow mustard seeds
2 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric
1c red lentils
4c boiling water
1 tbsp coconut nectar or date puree*
1 tsp salt
>1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce (OR a pinch of chilli and 2 tsp extra sweetener*)
1/2 raw cashews
1c cold water

Brown rice and fresh coriander (cilantro) to serve

* I've adapted this recipe slightly to make it 100% vegan and refined sugar free.

  1. 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.

  2. Put the cauliflower in a pot with some boiling water and cook for 5 minutes or until just starting to get soft. Drain immediately.

  3. 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.

  4. Stir in the coriander and turmeric for ~30 seconds to activate the flavours.

  5. Add the lentils and boiling water. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the lentils are soft.

  6. Add the coconut nectar/date puree, salt and sweet chilli sauce or chilli.

  7. Blend the cashew nuts and water together into a runny cream and add to the dahl.

  8. Add the cooked potato and cauliflower.

  9. 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!).
