This vegan light dhal is simply divine. Loaded with lentils, this plant-based dhal is packed with protein and full of potassium, calcium and zinc. This vegan dish is also sugar and gluten-free, so all can dig in.
Cook lentils in medium pot with water until they are soft (about 15 minutes).
In a separate pot, heat olive oil and cook ginger, garlic and onion until onion is semi-translucent.
Pour in water and add turmeric, coriander, cumin, chili powder, black pepper, and salt and bring to a boil.
Turn down to a simmer and add in cooked lentils.
Let simmer for another 5 minutes to let spices soak into lentils and then serve over rice!
This plant-based dhal is light and delicious, if you are looking for something thicker and fuller try this vegan Creamy Red Dhal. Some people love to eat this plant-based dish as a soup, but I personally love it served over rice. Enjoy!
