Less is more with this delicious dinner for two - succulent lamb is seasoned simply with black pepper and griddled, before being served with a richly spiced lentil, kale and tomato dhal. Not only is it packed with protein, low in salt and a great source of vitamin C, but it's also perfect for gluten-free diets - what's not to love? 

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat and add the spices. Cook for 1 min before adding the onion, garlic and chilli to cook for another 1-2 mins.
  2. Stir in the lentils, 400ml water, the coconut cream and the coriander and bring to simmer. Cook for 15-18 mins, until all of the liquid has been absorbed. 
  3. Season the lamb with black pepper. Heat a griddle pan until hot and cook the lamb for 6-7 mins on each side, or until cooked to your liking. 
  4. Stir the kale and tomatoes into the dhal, cook for 1-2 mins and season to taste.  Slice the lamb into strips. 
  5. Divide the dhal between 2 warmed bowls. Serve with the sliced lamb and sprinkle with the chopped mint to serve.
