Oh She Glows 8 Minute Vegan Dal

This “go-to” recipe from Angela at Oh She Glows can be on the table super-quick on busy weeknights! The prep time is a short 8 minutes, with ingredients most of us have on hand, and the cooking time is 25-minutes. It’s delicious and meets the Pure Vibe plant-based lifestyle as well as being gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, sugar-free, and soy-free.
