Today I’m sharing a delicious mushroom and lentil ragout that is hearty, warming and filling. It’s just perfect for serving on a chilly day! Rich in umami flavour, this plant-based ragout is simple to make and uses basic pantry ingredients. It is also super cheap too! We love to serve it with mashed potato, but jacket potato, pasta, polenta or rice would also be great options!
With its mild taste and soft texture, dhal has got to be the most family-friendly Indian dish! I first introduced dhal to Lucien when he was a toddler. As a twist on the classic recipe – and to bring a touch of sweetness and creaminess to the dish – I added some creamed coconut and butternut squash. He absolutely loved it! Fifteen years on, and this recipe is still a firm family favourite. We make it at least a couple of times a month!
