SWEET POTATO DAL (DHAL)

SWEET POTATO DAL (DHAL)

My husband's family is East Indian, so I have been eating flavourful lentil-based stew or dhal for well over 2 decades.  Throw-in some sweet potato, and you have my kinda winter comfort food.  It may not look fancy, but it is super tasty and satisfying.

This dhal is made with red lentils, carrots, sweet potatoes, onion, ginger, turmeric, and other wonderful spices traditionally used in Indian cooking.

BT BREKKIE

This delicious grain-free BROCCOLI TAHINI (BT) porridge is absolutely packed with all the goods: vitamins, minerals & antioxidants, along with fibre, healthy fats, protein and both pre & probiotics.

Don’t let the broccoli in here scare you off. When hubby first tried it, he actually thought it was made from oats! The riced broccoli gives a pleasant oatmeal-like chew and is mild enough that it really takes on the flavour of the other ingredients -- and we’re talking tahini, coconut, cinnamon. Delish!
