Love incorporating #apples into dinners.

Coconut, Apple and Ginger Dal

Source: Bon Appetit | Serves: | Time: 30-35 min


2 tbsp coconut oil

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

¼ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp ground turmeric

½ large onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 3" piece ginger, peeled, finely chopped

1 large #apple (unpeeled), grated on the large holes of a box grater

1½ cups red #lentils

1 13.5-oz. can coconut milk

2 1/2 cups water

2 tbsp lime juice


Cilantro leaves and toasted unsweetened coconut flakes for serving


Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high. Cook cayenne, cumin, and turmeric, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add onion, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes.

Add apple and lentils and stir to coat. Stir in coconut milk and 2½ cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until lentils are completely soft and dal is thick, 20–25 minutes. Add lime juice and season with salt and pepper.

Divide dal among bowls and top with cilantro and coconut flakes; season with more pepper. Enjoy with some naan if you'd like, and I did like.
