      A full flavoured and satisfying soup with a low calorie count. Just 123 calories per portion. Great if you are watching your weight and if you aren’t then serve with with crusty bread and vegan spread/butter.

      Ingredients
      1 tsp olive oil
      1 medium onion, finely chopped
      1 clove garlic, finely grated
      1 inch/2½ cm fresh ginger, finely grated
      2 tsp ground cumin
      1 tsp ground turmeric
      150g red lentils
      1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
      3 vegetable stock cubes, dissolved in 3 pints of hot water
      28g fresh coriander, finely chopped
      a good grinding of salt & black pepper

      Instructions
      1. Saute the onion, garlic and ginger in the olive oil until the onion is soft. Because we aren’t using much oil, you may need to add a splash of water to prevent sticking.
      2. Add the spices and mix well until the onion is well coated.
      3. Pour in the tomatoes, lentils and vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally as lentils have a tendency to catch on the bottom of the pan.
      4. Add the coriander and season with salt and pepper.
      5. Enjoy!
