Dinner Dahl -This is great for detoxing as the tumeric and cumin are great detox aids, helping the release of toxins and working with the pancreas.

50g (2oz) red lentils (pre-soaked are best)
1 tsp olive oil
1 leek
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin, 1/4 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp paprika
squeeze of lemon juice
1 small cauliflower (or ½ larger one), cut into medium-sized florets
water or vegetable stock
10g (1/3 oz) cashews
salt & pepper
handful of small mint leaves

Rinse and drain the lentils, checking for any small stones, and put to one side. Heat the oil in a heavy saucepan with a lid and cook the leeks until they begin to brown. Add the chilli, cumin, coriander, turmeric and paprika and stir well. Stir in the lentils, then squeeze in some lemon juice. Add the cauliflower florets, 150ml (1/4 pint) water or vegetable stock and the desiccated coconut.

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Check that there is still some liquid left, adding more if necessary, and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Add the cashews, a little salt, and most of the mint (retain some for a garnish). Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes until the liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally to prevent the dhal sticking. When the lentils have formed a really thick sauce, check the seasoning and serve immediately, garnished with a few mint leaves and accompanied by a fresh cucumber salad
