Chunky Vegetable Dal Stew
In our newest attempt to spread our love for the humble lentil, we created a satisfying chunky dal stew.
We highly recommend full-fat coconut milk in this one, for the richness it lends. Since you'll only be using 1/2 cup, you can freeze the remainder (or better yet freeze it in two 1/2 cup portions) so that you can pull it out the next time you make this recipe.
If you want to pump up the veggies even further, you could add a big handful of spinach or 1/4 cup of green peas in the last ...

Thai Squash, Red Pepper and Tofu Curry
To amp up the Thai flavors (and nutrition) try using unrefined coconut oil for this curry. To amplify the effect, use coconut milk- but don't let it limit you. If you don't have an open can sitting around, feel free to use any milk you have in your fridge. This one is hard to screw up! For added heat, throw in some chili flakes or hot sauce, for extra green, try a handful of spinach towards the end of cooking. Great served over rice for a complete meal.
