This is an adapted version of the Tomato and Lentil soup from The 5:2 Diet Book – I simply dry fried the onion with some Panch Poran spice blend, which gave it a delicious warming Asian flavour.
1 chopped onion
Pinch of chilli flakes
2 tablespoons of red lentils
1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
500ml vegetable stock (I used Marigold bouillon)
Coriander leaf, to taste (maybe ½ bunch)
Try it with your favourite spices – whole coriander or cumin seeds are lovely, or add some ground ginger and turmeric. This freezes very well so why not double up the portions for your next Fast Day - the ultimate in Fast Food.
