- 1 large onion

- 1 cup chopped carrots

- 1 tbsp. neutral cooking oil

3 minced garlic cloves

2 tsp finely grated ginger

- 1-2 minced red chili peppers

- 1 tsp cumin

- 1 tsp coriander

- 3/4 tsp cinnamon

- 3/4 tsp turmeric

- 1/4 tsp chili powder

- 2 tbsp. tomato paste

- 1-15oz can crushed tomatoes

-  4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

- 1 cup red lentils

- 1 large sweet potato

- Lucky Iron Fish or Leaf

- Cauliflower florets from 1 head cauliflower

- 14oz can coconut milk

-  2 tbsp. lime juice

- 2 tsp lime zest

 Salt and black pepper to taste


👉 Sauté 1 large onion (small dice) and 1 cup chopped carrot (medium dice) in oil on medium-high until onion starts to brown and stick to pan. ⁠

👉 Reduce heat and add garlic cloves and finely grated ginger. Add red chili peppers, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, turmeric and chili powder. ⁠

👉 Cook another 30 seconds until fragrant. Mix in 2 tbsp. tomato paste and sauté 30 seconds more while mixing.⁠

👉 Then add canned crushed tomatoes and low-sodium vegetable broth. (Optional: blend until smooth before adding sweet potato and lentils.) ⁠

👉 Add red lentils and sweet potato (roughly chopped into slightly larger than bite sized pieces). Stir and bring to a boil. ⁠

👉 Once boiling, add the Lucky Iron Fish and continue boiling 10 minutes. Then remove the Fish and reduce heat and simmer, partially covered. ⁠

👉 Add bite-sized cauliflower florets from 1 head cauliflower and cook until cauliflower and sweet potato are just about fork tender. ⁠

👉 Stir in the can of coconut milk and heat gently until warmed through. Remove from heat and mix in lime juice and zest. This will help increase nutrient absorption! Add salt and black pepper to taste.⁠
