INGREDIENTS (SERVES 4)

  • 2 Sweet potatoes - washed and chopped into cubes
  • Sea Salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • avocado oil ( or whichever oil you use)
  • 2 cloves of garlic-chopped

  • 400ml tin coconut milk
  • 400ml veg stock
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • bunch of coriander roughly chopped
  • juice of one lemon
  • sprinkle of desiccated coconut

Preheat your oven 220 C / fan 200 C Gas 7 Put the sweet potatoes on a baking tray sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grind you fennel & cumin seeds in a Mortar and Pestle and sprinkle over the potatoes with a drizzle of oil. Roast for 20-25 mins they want to be nice and soft and the skin slightly crispy. While they are cooking make the Dhal. Get a large saucepan and cook the Garlic, chilli, ginger, red onion in a little oil until its soft. Add the dried spice mix ingredients to the pan and cook for a couple of mins. Add the lentils, coconut and stock to the pan and simmer away for about 30 mins( keep giving it a little stir every now and then) once done ... take it off the heat and add your spinach, lemon juice and half of the coriander and give it a stir to wilt the spinach.

I like to serve mine in coconut bowls .... Topped with the sweet potatoes, the rest of the coriander and a sprinkle of desiccated coconut!!! Enjoy :)
