Lentils are one of our favourite ingredients. High in fibre and protein, low in fat and, most importantly, tasty! Dhal is a classic dish that makes the most of these versatile pulses, and can easily be made gluten free and vegan too. We have swapped calorie-laden coconut milk for a dairy-free milk alternative. You still get the great coconut taste and creaminess, but with fewer calories!

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Quick, easy and super tasty!
Use a food processor to chop finely the ginger, garlic and carrot. Keep tasting as you stir the final dish, so that you don't add too much lemon juice!
This was Beautiful!
I made this for my Mum and Sister for lunch and they both left with the recipe! I added a can of chick peas and some sweet potato to it this time. You can literally add any vegetables into this dish! We had a cheeky poppadom with it 😜.

Could you make this in a slow cooker? I’ve been making it in a casserole dish on my hob as I don’t have a saucepan big enough but some of the dhal always sticks to the bottom!

What am I looking to buy as a dairy free alternative? Would I be able to get this in a tin?

    Hi Jo
    You are looking for a coconut plant based alternative to dairy milk. Popular brands are Alpro, Koko and many supermarkets have their own brands. You’ll usually find them in the “free from” aisle along with soya and oat milk.
    Alternatively, you could use tinned coconut milk, but this would add extra calories.
