I've been catering seminar lunches at my favorite Physio Therapy place- Entropy. Their focus is on complex conditions and restoring hope - something I can personally speak deeply about. Preparing food for this group is like cooking for friends who admire healthy options, we all are connected through our strive for wellness, which goes beyond just food.
Dahl is basically a stew that can be made from lentils, chickpeas or black beans. For this dish I went the lentil route, the organic green lentil route. Then I stuffed it full of mushrooms and spinach and topped it off with cumin, garam masala and a touch of curry.
A veggie lentil stew isn't necessarily boring, but my chutney yogurt creation is what really brings this dish alive. Pulling from my recent Moroccan visit, a touch of sweet really shines with ethnic spices and the creaminess calms the heat (if you decided to go heavy on the jalapeno.)
This dish pretty much cooks itself, it just needs your love and some good friends to appreciate it.
Happy Healthy Tips: Lentils pack a punch of protein, give a good dose of magnesium (important for sleep) and is a great source for fiber (keeping our digestive track working.)
This dish is really lovely as is.But if I were to cook this just for me, I would heavy-up on the spices and add in a full jalapeno.
