    3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

    Heat a large saucepan, add oil and cook onions 3-4 minutes to soften but not colour, add spice blend and cook for 1 minute to release essential spice flavours.

    Add Tomatoes, stock or water and red lentils and bring to the boil then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring regularly. Add more water if the mixture becomes too thick. Season with Salt and Pepper to taste and serve sprinkled with chopped parsley or coriander as preferred.

    ASPARAGUS SOUP:
    2 tbsp. butter
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 bunches asparagus, ends trimmed, cut into pieces
    salt to taste
    Freshly ground black pepper
    2 c. chicken broth or stock
    1/2 c. cream
    Freshly chopped chives, for garnish
    Freshly chopped dill, for garnish, optional

    DIRECTIONS
    In a pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add asparagus, season with salt and pepper, and cook until golden, 5 minutes. Add broth and simmer, covered, until asparagus is very tender but still green, 10 to 15 minutes.
    Using a stick blender, puree soup. If using a regular blender, be sure to stop and remove lid a few times to avoid overheating the soup. Return to pot, stir in cream, then warm over low heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    Garnish with more cream and herbs
