Jo’s Dal is completely delicious and so nourishing. I often grab one after a difficult day at work, or if I’m drained, and I can almost feel it instantly nurturing my soul as well as my body.

Jo uses skinless, pre-soaked, slow cooked lentils which make them more digestible, reduces the phytate and lectin content (some people have difficulty digesting and assimilating foods which contain these natural substances), and makes the nutrients more readily available and absorbable.

The combination of slow-cooked organic lentils - packed full of protein, B1,B6, folate, iron and other micronutrients, and high quality protein – with immune-boosting onions, garlic and chili, plus fibre and antioxidants from seasonal local veggies and MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) and immune-boosting lauric acid in organic coconut cream make Darlin’ Dal an incredibly nutrient-rich meal. Combine it with one of their sprouted salads, and you have a complete vegetarian protein, and a no-fuss meal that will help balance your mood, control blood sugar and energy levels, and nourish your entire body all your round. Darlin Dal is the perfect nutrient-dense vegetarian meal for anyone wanting to maximise their health and well-being.


“At 83, Uncle Peter is a physically active person who walks 10+ km per day collecting recyclables (he calls this work). He then converts it to cash so he can buy blankets and tinned food for the homeless throughout Adelaide CBD.

He 'works' 10-12 hours per days 365 days per year and keeping his independence is my No. 1 priority while still trying to manage his dementia and bipolar.

Your meal options are a pivotal component to his independence and ability to remain in his own home as long as practical.

Thanks for indulging my storytelling in providing you with the context that Darlin Dal plays in Peter's well-being.

Many thanks for the excellent service – I love your business ethos.”

    positive review  OMG we have come from Sydney and have just met Jo from Darling Dal. What an absolute treat. We had lunch there whilst eating her Dal of the Day which happened to be Cornish Pastie with no pastry in sight. We sat in her little shop and listened to her talk about her passion for cooking Dal, organic spices and blends, organic teas and her incredible knowledge of good nutrition. Thank you Jo for a wonderful experience we absolutely adored our time with you. Footnote: we have bought Dal and lots of spices and blends to take home with us to try and cook Dal at home.Happy Cooking!!

    5 star review  My first visit today and it was a lovely experience. Jo is very friendly and helpful and the dhal is amazingly delicious. The bonus - I found the organic ginger I've been searching for so that I can start growing my own. I will definitely be back!
