Easy as Dahl

This dahl is so yummy and easy, it’s a great source of comfort food and nice to have on a winters’ night. The warm ginger and use of spices and garlic are excellent for digestive health and have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial proprieties. This dahl is rich in protein and fibre and when served with a brown or wild rice is the perfect combination of carbohydrates, protein and deliciousness. Great for babies and kids too, without chilli means the entire family can share this meal. If short on time, put all ingredients in a slow cooker at the start of the day before work and come home to a ready-made meal. Enjoy Bec
