Lentils are a powerhouse of protein. Our simple lentil recipe is perfect for whipping up a quick, simple, tasty dinner that’s easy to prepare but still has loads of flavour. We used one chilli for a mildly spicy dish, but you can add more to turn up the heat if you prefer. Serve with basmati rice and a green salad.



  • 2 cloves of garlic – peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 thumb-size piece of ginger – peeled and finely grated
  • 1 green chilli – seeds removed and finely sliced
  • 1 red onion – peeled and finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 200 g uncooked green lentils
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 400 ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp oil for cooking
  • salt & pepper


  1. Place a pan on a medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of oil, then the garlic, ginger, chilli and red onion. saute for 3-5 mins until starting to soften. 
  2. Add ground cumin and ground coriander. Cook for a further 2 minutes.
  3. Add 200 g lentils, 400 ml coconut milk and 400 ml of veg stock.
  4. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 25-30 mins. 
  5. When the lentils are cooked, season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
