IF YOU HAVEN’T GIVEN DAL A TRY, THIS ONE WILL HAVE YOU HOOKED!
“Suggesting that we shouldn’t eat cooked legumes because raw legumes cause disease is like saying that we shouldn’t eat cooked chicken because we can get Salmonella from eating raw chicken.” – Chris Kresser
The above quote basically sums up my thoughts on legumes! I’m a girl who suffers from gut issues and was told I shouldn’t eat any form of bean, lentil, or legume because of the phytic acid and the impact it would have on my gut. But here is the thing, if you properly prepare your beans and cook them well, they become way less disruptive, if at all.
And for a desi girl who grew up eating dal, giving it up wasn’t going to be easy. So instead I take the time to properly prepare my dals and I try to stick to the ones I know are going to be easier on my digestion. Check out my guide to lentils & legumes to learn more about how to make them work better for you!
I am super excited to share with you one of my all-time favorite recipes! This one is made with red lentils which are easy on digestion, along with coconut milk, and spinach. It’s vegan, wholesome, a great source of plant-based protein, and just straight-up satisfying.
