- 200g lentils (or one can, drained and washed)
- 1 avocado
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 large handful of spinach
- 2 carrots
- 1 red bell pepper (capsicum)
- 2 tbsp chopped dill (garnish)
- 25g cashews (chopped)
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 brown onion
- 200ml MSG-free veg stock
Prepare the lentils and set aside. Next, roughly chop the onion and garlic and warm gently in a very large saucepan with the coconut oil. While these are browning, chop the sweet potato and carrots roughly, add to the pan. Stir for about 2 minutes to start to warm and add the stock, and simmer for 10 mins. Add the lentils for five minutes.
Transfer to a blender or food processor and add in the avocado, capsicum, spinach and dill. Blend until smooth and serve with the sprigs of dill, sprinkle with the chopped cashews and drizzle with a little olive oil at the end.
