When soft add the CHICKEN BROTH, TOMATOES and LENTILS (12min cooking time). Remember to wash the lentils first.
Let the soup boil and then turn down the heat to a simmer until the lentils are soft, this will depend on the lentil's package instructions.
When the lentils are soft add the SPINACH and simmer gently until the spinach is cooked...5min if you are using frozen spinach and 1min if fresh.
Now liquidize. You don't have to liquidize but the flavours combine nicely this way.
