So here it is, finally, a recipe. This one comes from the food delivery box we received last month. It uses two of the ingredients which are noted in the recipe title.
You will need:
1tbsp olive oil
1 carrot, chopped
3 garlic cloves, we crushed them
1 c Black lentils
1 tsp salt, which we left out
5 c vegetable broth/stock
1 14oz can of diced tomatoes, we used crushed
1 onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped, which we didn’t have
2 tbsp dry white wine
2 tsp Herbes de Provence
1/4 tsp cracked pepper
4 c baby spinach
Heat olive oil in a large pot and add onion, garlic, celery, and carrots. Cook for 5 mins.
Add the wine, lentils, tomatoes, Herbes de Provence, salt, pepper, stock, and give it a good stir. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
Cover and cook for 40 mins. After 10 mins, we noticed the most amazing smell. Ooh, it smells good.
Five minutes before the end of cooking, add the chopped spinach.
And you’re done! Easy peasy. It results in a pretty thick soup.
Now for the taste test:
Becky – “yum”
Cheryl – “yum”
2 yums. Give it a go. It’s easy and nutritious. It was a great recipe for Good Friday as there was no meat. The herbs definitely add a lot of flavour, so try and find some.
