Ingredients for 2 portions

Preparation time: 25 minutes


  • 200 g red lentils
  • 2 YOGI TEA® Classic teabags
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 1 onion
  • 1 green chilli
  • 20 g ginger
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 150 g tomatoes
  • ½ tsp raw cane sugar
  • ½ bunch of coriander

  • Bring the lentils to the boil with the teabags and salt in 600 ml water. Leave to simmer over a low to medium heat, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, stirring carefully every now and then.
  • Finely chop the onion, chilli and ginger. Pour the oil into a hot pan and sauté the chopped vegetables together with the cumin seeds over a medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are transparent.
  • Add the tomatoes, sugar and finely chopped coriander stalks and simmer for another 5 minutes. Stir every now and then and add a little water if necessary.
