Lentils are one of my favourite ingredients in the kitchen. They are extremely versatile and a great source of plant protein for those days when I cook vegetarian. Swiss Chard is full of rich anti-oxidants and goodness. This soup is one of my favourites as it was a staple at home growing up, and the combination of flavours is just delicious. I especially love all the coriander!
2 carrots diced
2 small potatoes diced
250g green lentils
4 garlic cloves crushed
60g coriander chopped
150g swiss chard
1 lemon juiced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Tip: When Swiss Chard is not available, I have replaced it with spinach and found it worked well in this recipe.
This recipe has very little oil in it, but if you are avoiding fried foods such as during a detox, replace the oil with water. Simply put a little water in a frying pan and 'fry' your vegetables in water.
