Creamy coconut dal

In the kit:

A spice mix ready to make your curry, including cumin seeds, fennel seeds, yellow mustard seeds, garam masala, turmeric, ground coriander, mustard powder, ground cumin, ground ginger, and cayenne pepper.

You will need:

Coconut oil (3 tbsp)

Garlic cloves (2, crushed)

Red chilli (1 deseeded, finely chopped)

Ginger (thumb-size piece, grated)

Red onions (3, thinly sliced into semi circles)

Dried red lentils (380g)

Coconut milk (1 x 400ml tin)

Vegetable stock (720ml)

Spinach (100g, optional)

Lime juice (half a lime)


Cooking Instructions


  1. Begin by heating the coconut oil in a large heavy-based pan on a medium heat. Add your first Teaspoon Club spice packet and toast the spices for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the garlic cloves, chilli, ginger, and the onions and fry for 5 minutes until the onions thoroughly softened. Add your second Teaspoon Club spice packet and mix well
  2. Remove half of the spiced onions from the pan and set aside, keeping them warm for later. Add the lentils to the pan and mix thoroughly to coat the lentils entirely in the spice mixture
  3. Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable stock and stir to combine. Half cover the dahl, and simmer for up to 1 hour 30 minutes (though 1 hour will suffice) stirring regularly until the dahl is creamy and the  lentils cooked. Resist temptation to add additional liquid; the dahl will become creamier as the lentils break down
  4. If using, stir through the spinach until it is wilted
  5. Season well and stir through the lime juice. Enjoy your dahl hot, sprinkling over the cooked spicy onions you set aside. You can serve with rice or chapatis

Vegetable chilli

In the kit:

A spice mix for the chilli including chilli powder, ground cumin, smoked paprika, oregano, a bay leaf, basil, and cloves

You will need:

Vegetable oil (1 tbsp)

Garlic cloves (2, crushed)

Chilli (1, chopped finely. Could use jalapeño)

Onion (1, finely chopped)

Carrots (2, peeled and chopped into small pieces)

Celery sticks (1, finely chopped)

Bell peppers (1 red and 1 green, deseeded and chopped into small pieces)

Plum tomatoes (2 x 400g tin)

Button mushrooms (200g, quartered)

Vegetable stock cube (1, crushed)

Red wine (125ml)

Light brown soft sugar (½ tbsp)

Tomato ketchup (1 tbsp)

Dark chocolate (2 squares about 25g, optional)

Kidney beans (1 x 400g tin, drained)


Cooking Instructions


  1. Heat the oil on a medium heat in a Dutch oven, or large heavy bottomed pan
  2. Add the garlic, chilli, onion and your Teaspoon Club spice packet. Fry until the onion is softened (five minutes or so)
  3. Add the carrots and celery and fry for five minutes, coating in the spices until they begin to soften
  4. Add the peppers, plum tomatoes, mushrooms, stock cube, red wine, sugar, ketchup (and if using, chocolate) and mix well. You may need to break up the plum tomatoes with a pair of scissors if they struggle to breakdown. Bring the chilli to a simmer and cover. Leave to cook for at least 40 minutes, though up to two hours is best, topping it up with water from the kettle if all the water evaporates. If you need your chilli to be ready quickly, you can simmer it on a higher heat uncovered, though the flavour will be less rich
  5. After it has simmered, remove the lid from the chilli and pour in the kidney beans. Stir well and cook uncovered for a further five minutes so any sitting liquid is evaporated
  6. Turn off the heat and leave to stand for 10 minutes before serving hot with soured cream and grated cheese or non-dairy alternatives
