I love a dahl, as I’m sure you all do! and this dish is slowly becoming a weekly occurrence for me. topped with that coriander and mint chutney and you have got yourself something perfect for everyone to enjoy!


1.Chuck the onions, garlic, ginger and carrots into a food processor with the olive oil. Blitz to a paste and fry till soft.
2.Add in the spices, and cook for 2 mins. Then the lentils, stock cubes and boiling water.
3.Let it bubble for 10 minutes. Whilst you wait, make a chutney by blitzing the herbs, spices, agave and water until smooth.
4.Add in the posh kale (or spinach) and let it wilt. Then serve it up!
5.Go eat. That's it.
