Ingredients

  • 2 med onions
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • I teaspoon ground cummin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • I litre pack of vegetable stock (4 cups)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups red lentils
  • 1 pack of frozen spinach (could also use fresh)
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Fry the diced onions in olive oil.
  2. Add spices on low gas and stir and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add lentils and stir and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add stock and water.
  5. Cook for 30 minutes
  6. Add frozen spinach and cook for further 10 minutes
  7. Season and serve

Variation

    Lemon rind can be added when cooking and lemon juice when cooked. Fresh coriander can also be added after cooking.
