Red Lentil Dhal with Coconut and Sweet Potato

Dhal is one of my favourite foods ever and it is so easy to make from scratch. It is ready in 30 minutes, making it a great weeknight dinner option. Dhal is also super cheap and nutrient dense, making it the perfect plant-based meal for students or anyone on a tight budget.

As a twist on the classic dish, the recipe I’m sharing today includes some coconut and sweet potato for a touch of sweetness and creaminess. And it’s still budget friendly too, costing just 81p per portion (or just 54p if you make your own chapatis!)

Home-Made Chapatis (Indian Flatbread)

I love making home-made chapatis! They are so easy and cheap to make. They also taste much fresher than the shop-bought version. I find it takes about 15 minutes to make four chapatis from scratch (the perfect amount for 2 people) and costs just 11p per serving! They can be prepared while your curry or dhal are simmering away on the hob.

Curried Tempeh Vegan Sandwich Slices

The curried tempeh I’m sharing today makes one tasty, high protein sandwich filling! For my work lunch box, I love to serve it in a seeded bap with some juicy tomato slices, diced red pepper, fresh green leaves and a dollop of vegan mayo or mango chutney. Just like tofu, I find that adding a couple of slices of tempeh to my lunchtime sandwich really helps to power me through the afternoon and keeps me feeling full for hours.
