Butternut Squash Dahl | Veganuary Week 2

This one pot butternut squash dahl is amazing! It's really healthy, packed full of lentils and leafy kale.

This recipe is part of the second week of recipes in our Veganuary meal plan! This portion size serves 1 with leftovers or two people so if you're cooking this on your own you'll have plenty for lunch the next day!

This dahl is packed full of vitamins, especially from the lentils, kale and butternut squash. It's a great option for dinner and takes no time at all to make and it's all in one pot.
