Creamy Lentil Dahl Inspired Dish

This recipe was inspired by lentil Dahl, which we love.

It’s a weekly staple because it’s  so easy to make, so delicious, low cost and has such simple, healthy ingredients that make you feel amazing. The coconut cream adds that extra bit of indulgence. We love making this for friends because it is impressively delicious (who said vegan food was boring!) and also due to how quick and easy it is to make love having it mid-week after work.
