Easy Awesome White Girl Dal

Easy Awesome White Girl Dal

So simple and takes no time to make a delicious and satisfying meal high in protein and amazing beneficial spices. If you have a rice cooker, it makes it even more effortless. I prefer this with organic basmati rice that I add a pinch of cumin seeds to in the steamer. UN-real and super delicious.

1c red lentils, moong dal (yellow lentils), or mung beans- YOU CHOOSE!

3c water

__

In a large pot, bring the lentils or beans to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer partially covered for 45-60 minutes or until buttery soft and broken down. Add more water if necessary.

Set aside. Drain if necessary.

The DAL

2T coconut oil

1/2t cumin seeds

1t turmeric

1/2t chipolte smoked hot pepper (optional)

1” fresh ginger, grated

1/2t pink salt

1T vegan butter

Handful of fresh parsley, minced

Large handful of baby spinach whole, or kale, cleaned and trimmed into bite size pieces.

In a large cast iron pan, sauté the spices in the coconut oil over medium high heat.

Add the cooked lentils or beans.

Stir well incorporating the lentils/beans into the spice oil mixture.

Add in the greens. When they are bright green and just tender, finish off the dal with the vegan butter. Serve immediately over white or brown basmati rice.

Fucking delicious.
