So we are lucky enough to have unlimited access to a chef right here at VIVA.. one of our longest term members, Eloise, is a chef with multiple hats and the other day I was lucky enough to be invited over for lunch…
It was orgasmic.
So, I stole a photo of the recipe to share it with you guys today…
Sssshhhhhh don’t tell her – or I may not be invited back …
Lentil Soup with Lamb & Spinach..
1 Onion, fine chop
1 leek, fine chop
1 Carrot, fine chop
1 tsp Fennel Seeds
Saute in 3TB of olive oil
1 Clove garlic – sweat for a minute
500g roasted tomatoes (use a tin if have to)
1 litre good organic chicken stock
salt n pepper
Simmer for 1 hour – then Blend with hand blender.
Seperately cook 1 cup for brown or black lentils (water and salt)
Then add to soup after blending.
Shred leftover meat – Lamb shank or similar is perfect
Dress some organic spinach with lemon & garlic
Add both of the above to soup with 3TBS of greek yoghurt
And serve with a sprinkle of coriander & a glass of nice wine and a big smile 🙂
