Nourishing Dahl Recipe for Gut Health: Rewilding Your Palate. It’s Dahl-icious!

Posted by Feel Good on

Welcome back to my finding my feel good journey

Today I’m rewilding my gut health and am excited to share a delicious and nutritious recipe that builds upon the vegetable broth we made earlier this week. By adding split pea lentils and an array of flavorful ingredients, we'll create a mouthwatering Dahl that not only satisfies our taste buds but also supports our gut health. Let's dive into the details!

Preparing the Dahl:
To begin, thoroughly wash and rinse approximately 2 cups of split pea lentils until the water runs clear. Adjust the quantity as needed based on the number of servings required.

In a separate pan, lightly cook a combination of garlic, leeks, shallots, carrots, and shredded red cabbage. This medley of vegetables adds both texture and a wealth of nutrients to our Dahl. Feel free to experiment with additional spices like oregano, turmeric, and your personal favorites to enhance the flavours.

Adding Flavourful Herbs:
Once the vegetables are cooked to perfection, it's time to introduce a variety of fresh herbs that will infuse our Dahl with aromatic goodness. Consider incorporating turmeric, ginger, coriander, thyme, and parsley to lend depth and vibrancy to the dish. These herbs not only enhance the taste but also contribute to our overall well-being.

Simmering to Perfection:
Ladle in the vegetable broth we prepared earlier, aiming for a ratio of approximately half broth and half filtered water. This ensures that the lentils are adequately covered. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low, allowing the Dahl to simmer gently. It's crucial to monitor the consistency to prevent the Dahl from drying out. Add more water or broth as needed, adjusting to your desired taste and texture.

Voila! Our nourishing Dahl is ready to be enjoyed. The combination of tender lentils, flavorful vegetables, and aromatic herbs will tantalise your senses and contribute to a healthy gut.

To recap, here's a list of the ingredients you'll need for this gut-nurturing Dahl:
- 2 carrots
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1 leek
- 1/2 shredded cabbage
- 1 shallot
