Easy Red lentil dahl – it’s so tasty and very easy!
I wanted a really lovely easy red lentil Dahl recipe and I wanted to write it for you. It’s taken me ages to get it just right. I’m sure you’re going to love it as much as I do
It’s easy, vegan, vegetarian, protein packed, low-fat, and delicious!!
This makes a big portion – so please half the recipe if you only want to serve 4!
And it’s made in the Slow Cooker! It’s very easy 🙂 Just dump it all in!
Some recipes have coconut milk added which makes a creamier Dahl, however I haven’t added any as I was conscious of fat and I wanted a very low fat recipe
What is Dahl?
Is Dahl good for you?
Dhal is an excellent source of iron and fibre, and a good source of protein, for vegetarians. This recipe is also VEGAN
Dahl is packed full of nutrients and provides a good source of vitamins, minerals and fibre.
Lentils are also high in protein and low in fat so they are great substitute for meat.
All pulses & lentils are a lower price protein too!

But to be honest it couldn’t be any easier
Step 1 to your perfect Red Lentil Dahl
Chuck all your ingredients and spices into your slow cooker or crockpot
Serving suggestions for your Dahl
I like mine served with rice, however I also have it occasionally on a jacket potato
I also sometimes add frozen spinach just before I serve it too
I’ve been know to eat just a bowl of Dahl for lunch
Can I freeze my Red Lentil Dahl?
Yes you can – absolutely 🙂
If you have some left over, pop in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days
If you want to freeze it for a later date you can also do that – freeze for up to 3 months
If your vegan or following a plant based diet this dish is perfect for you
You maybe just trying to cut your meat intake and this is also perfect and totally delicious

Slow Cooker Choice
Lots of people ask me about which slow cooker I would recommend
Well it has to be this one, it has a sear function for browning – so a lot less washing up and a way more flavour for your recipes
