Number of Servings: 6


    1 1/2 cup of lentils
    1 small onion, thinly sliced
    1 tsp chopped garlic
    2 medium carrots, sliced into thin discs
    1 14oz can of chopped tomatoes
    1 tbsp of tomato paste
    1/2 tsp of oregano
    4 cups hot water
    1/2 cup (2 ozs) orzo
    dash of salt
    1 tsp of black pepper
    1 cup of fresh spinach


1. Rinse the lentils, drain them and put them in a large pan with cold water to cover. Bring to the boil and boil for 3-4 minutes. Strain, discarding the liquid, and set the lentils aside.

2. Wipe the pan clean, heat the olive oil in it, then add the onion and saute until translucent. Stir in the garlic, then, as soon as it becomes aromatic, return the lentils to the pan.

3. Add the carrot, tomatoes, tomato paste and oregano. Stir in the hot water and a little pepper to taste.

4. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat, cover the pan and cook gently for 30 minutes until the lentils feel soft but have not begun to disintegrate. Halfway through, add the orzo. Then 10 mins before the soup is done add the fresh spinach and a pinch of salt.
