Roast Aubergine & Turkey Dahl
A dahl is basically a lentil soup. Its great for days like this one when I might have slightly over indulged at lunch and want a healthy and nutritious meal that doesn’t contain too many calories. It has plenty of spices, especially ginger which is also great for if you are feeling like you are getting a cold or blocked nose, as it helps to clear you out. If it sounds too spicy for your liking then its really easy to adjust the spicing, just half everything. When making this myself for the first time I had planned on making a turkey and aubergine curry with rice, but when the time came to cook I realised I really wasn’t very hungry as I had eaten too much at lunch, so I turned to google for inspiration for a lower calorie recipe idea instead. I came across this really tasty sounding recipe from Easy Peasy Foodie which really appealed to me and so I built on it and came up with this. It definitely does pack a nutritious punch and so left me feeling satisfied and not so guilty for over indulging during the day.
