Creamy Coconut Lentil Dahl

As some of you may know I now live in a camper van full time! That has brought with it a few different challenges but has also created some epic one pot recipes, this Creamy Coconut Lentil Dahl is one of them. This Dahl is amazing with rice, naan bread or even served cold with a salad or as dom likes to have it… in a sandwich the next day, haha!

It’s a low maintenance meal & one we’ve eaten over and over again in the last few months. It’s quickly become our fave & hopefully it will be yours too.
