Lentil Dal


Peel sweet potatoes and cut into cubes ( cook amount of 1 sweet potato separately in a pot with water for about 20 min).

Sauté the remaining cubes together with finely chopped onions, garlic and coconut oil in a pot.

Add tomato paste & spices and sauté briefly.

Add coconut milk and broth and simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.

Next add the lentils and simmer for another 15 min, then fold in the washed spinach leaves and cook for another 5 min.

Meanwhile, fry the cubes of sweet potato cooked separately in a pan with hot coconut oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds, turning frequently until crispy.

Season the lentil dal to taste, arrange on a plate and garnish with sesame potato cubes.

Our lamb's lettuce with blueberry dressing tastes great with this.
