Ingredients:1 rounded tbsp Vita Coco coconut oil
2 onions, peeled and finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp dried chilli flakes
1 tbsp medium curry paste
300g dried red lentils
1 litre hot vegetable stock
a handful of fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
generous pinch of sea salt
- In a large pan, heat the oil and sliced onions over a medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until the onions are golden-brown. Remove half of the cooked onions from the pan, and set them aside.
- Add the garlic, turmeric, cumin and chilli flakes into the remaining onions and cook for one minute. Stir in the curry paste until combined.
- Pour in the red lentils and half of the stock, then simmer over a medium heat for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, add in the remaining stock and simmer until the liquid has absorbed, stirring frequently to avoid sticking.
- Remove from the heat and stir through the reserved caramelised onions and flat leaf parsley. Season to taste with sea salt. Serve hot.
