  • About

A colourful and healthy meal. Turmeric and ginger are anti– inflammatory and therefore good for digestion, as is coconut oil, which metabolises well. Organic coconut oil is available to order alongside our veg boxes; it’s great for stir-fries and curries, or for roasting veg as it has a slightly different flavour to other oils.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 1 large or 2

Method

Melt the coconut oil in a large pan. Add the onion and fry on a low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Turn up the heat a little and add the garlic, ginger, chilli, mustard seeds and turmeric. Stir for about 1 minute, until you hear the mustard seeds start to pop.

Stir the coconut milk in the can then pour into the pan with the lentils and ground coriander and cumin. Fi
