olive oil

thumb size piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped

10 cherry tomatoes, cored and halved

2 cups red lentils (or another variety that prefer, but you may have to adjust cooking times)

7 cups fresh spinach, torn of large

1 whole lemon, juiced plus more to serve (not in Oliver's recipe but trust me!)

1 cup natural yoghurt

Preparation

  • Get the first four ingredients ready, then in a separate pot bring your stock to a boil, keeping hot, set aside.
  • In a lage sauce pan on medium heat, warm approximately 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Add carrot, celery, onions and garlic, cook with lid slightly skewed for about 10 minutes or until the veg is soft but still holding together.
  • Meanwhile get ginger, chile and tomatoes ready. Add boiling broth, lentils , ginger and chile to the sauce pan with the veg.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer. Cook with the lid on until the lentils are done.
  • Add the spinach cook for another 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper and the juice of one lemon.
  • You can either serve it as is or use an immersion blender to make it smoother.
  • Serve with a dollop of yoghurt, freshly diced chile and a wedge of lemon.
