We all currently need alternative ways to spruce up our canned goods and, although I would usually cook lentils from scratch, throwing in tinned ones means this dahl comes together much more quickly.
I love to thicken up my sauces with nut or seed butters (tahini in this instance) and add a pop of extra colour and freshness with a handful of pomegranate seeds (actually known as arils, because of their outer sweet red flesh).
1 tbsp Organic Kitchen extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Just Natural Organic garlic granules (or 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced)
1 onion, finely diced (or 1 tsp onion powder)
1 small butternut squash, peeled, deseeded, and diced into bite-sized chunks
2 x 400g tins of Organic Kitchen lentils, drained and rinsed well
600ml Organic Kitchen passata (1.5 x 400g tins of Organic Kitchen chopped tomatoes)
1 tsp Just Natural Organic ground cumin
1 tsp Just Natural Organic ground coriander
½ tsp Just Natural Organic ground ginger
½ tsp Just Natural Organic cayenne pepper (or more, dependent on your desired level of spice!)
2 tbsp tahini
½ tsp sea salt, or to desired taste
Fresh coriander, dairy-free or natural yogurt of choice, and a handful of pomegranate seeds/arils, to serve
