Sustainable Supper: Rich, Spicy & Nutritious Dhal


Dhal is a key dish in the Indian cuisine, and that’s easy enough to understand, when you gobble up a spoonful of steaming hot spicy lentils.

Besides being incredibly tasty, the dish is also climate-friendly since it doesn’t contain meat. Add our buffalo beetle powder to get a shot of B12, animal protein, iron etc. Then you have the perfect dinner with a complete nutritional profile.
