    Quick red lentil dhal with fried egg, avocado & herbs

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    200g red split lentils, rinsed
    4 cloves garlic, crushed
    2 tbsp reduced salt light soy sauce
    1 tsp ground coriander
    2 tsp ground cumin
    4 tbsp fat free Greek yogurt, plus extra to serve
    1 tsp olive oil
    2 Waitrose British Blacktail Medium Free Range Eggs
    1 baby avocado, peeled, stoned and sliced
    ¼ x 28g pack fresh coriander, chopped


    1. Place the rinsed lentils into a medium saucepan with the garlic, soy sauce and spices. Cover with 375ml cold water and bring to a boil over a high heat, then cover and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently and adding a little more water if needed, until creamy. Remove from the heat, mix in the yogurt and season.

    2. Meanwhile, add the oil to a non-stick frying pan and fry the eggs for 2 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Spoon the dhal onto a plate or shallow bowl, top with the eggs, avocado and coriander. Serve with extra yogurt if you wish.
