This vegan friendly, healthy dish really makes for a great source of protein. Serve with steamed vegetables or brown rice for a hearty meal that is sure to get your tastebuds excited! Not only is this meal a nutritious option, but it's also packed with flavors that wont disappoint. I strongly recommend adding an extra drizzle of coconut milk for one last burst of flavor and to give this dish the mouth-watering aesthetic it deserves! Remember that while this dish makes for a great family dinner, leftovers also work well as tomorrow's lunch - packed and ready to go, and giving you the boost you need to get through your busy schedule in one piece.

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups red lentils
  • 400 mL dairy free coconut milk
  • 1.5 tbsp vegan tom yum sauce
  • 2 cups vegan onion soup broth

Dice the onion. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil. When hot, add in the onion and stir with a wooden spoon until the onion is translucent and starting to brown. This should take around 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Using and mortar and pestle, grind together the garlic, ginger, coriander, pepper and salt until it turns to liquid. Set aside.
Return onions to a high heat and add in the lentils, coconut milk, broth and mortar and pestle mixture. Use the wooden spoon to fully combine.
Allow the mixture to boil and then turn the heat down to medium. Cook for approximately 20 minutes (the lentils should soften). Serve hot.
