Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 cups dried brown lentils
  • 3 potatoes, peeled, diced (Id use sweet potatoes! my favorite)
  • 2 litres vegetable stock 
  • 1 bunch English spinach, leaves removed, washed, chopped (Any spinach will work)
  • 2 lemons, rind finely grated, juiced


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until soft. Add lentils, potatoes and stock. Bring to the boil. Use a slotted spoon to skim any residue from surface of soup.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, for 25 minutes or until lentils are tender. Remove from heat. Add spinach, 1/2 cup of lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. Ladle into bowls. Top with lemon rind.
