    I just made the cauliflower & coconut dahl shown in this recipe:


    The quantities given are for 6-8 servings so I halved it all and am calling mine 4 servings. It comes out at 31g carb per portion which isn't too different to the M&S version that I take for my day at work when I stay all day and need a lunch - theirs is 29. I'm T1 so it's OK for me (I aim at about 100-120g per day), but obviously T2 needs are different.

    I used yellow lentils but otherwise stuck to the recipe, and once it was done I stirred hard to take the cauli down into smaller pieces. 20 minutes at a simmer made mine so the cauli is tender but hasn't broken up, and the lentils haven't disintegrated into a mush. I do like mushy lentils but sometimes texture is good!
