Spicy Lentil Soup (Serves 4)
I love this recipe because it is super simple to make... you literally just a bit of chop the veg and then put everything (except the yogurt and coriander) in the pot and you are good to go. Its chunky and filling and makes a great lunch or dinner option. Such a great option when you are busy.
It is a slow cooker recipe but you could put it in a casserole and cook it slowly in the oven at a low temperature (around 120 C for around 5 hours).
