Dhal & Spinach Bowl Convenience-style

Another of those not-a-recipes to help you discover a few more ready-made things from supermarket and health food shop shelves, chillers and freezer cabinets! Because not everyone has time to cook every night, some people don't like cooking much at all and some of us only want to do it sometimes. 

 

The good news is that dhal or dahl comes in tins, yay! So here is a tasty, satisfying and nutritious meal from a handful of simple ingredients. 

 

If you're a vegan food geek and like to cook industrial quantities of dhal/dhal and freeze it (yep, that'll be me then), well, you've got it sorted - although we dhal geeks might want to get out more. For the rest of you mere (and sensible) mortals, the tin thing will suffice.

 

But home-made dhal is so EASY and quick to make and ... should you ever feel the urge. Just sayin'. 

 

    

Ingredients: 

1 tin per person dhal or dahl - see above for a couple of brands 
1 portion of rice from a ready-made pouch, eg Aldi, all other major supermarkets, Uncle Ben, Tilda
1 portion of spinach or chard - this can be fresh or from a bag
Chapati(s), preferably wholemeal
Plain vegan yoghurt, eg Alpro, Sojade, Tesco. For a soya-free version try a coconut milk based vegan yoghurt
Salad, any type you like 

 

    

Method: 

1. Heat up the dhal/dahl - add the spinach to it and let it cook for a few minutes. Baby leaf cooks almost instantly, bigger leaves or chard take a bit longer. 
2. Heat up the brown or other rice and also the chapatis if using. 
3. Serve everything hot in a nice bowl with the chapatis on the side. 
4. Add vegan yoghurt. Eat and enjoy.
