Serves 1
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil View
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 tbsp peeled and grated ginger
250g frozen green peas
250g fresh broccoli roughly chopped
400ml vegetable stock
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
400g coconut milk
20 fresh mint leaves
200g cooked lentils View
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil View
zest of 1/2 unwaxed lemon

To prepare the lentil topping, add the cooked lentils to a small bowl, stir through the oil and zest and seasoning to taste. Set aside.

For the soup, heat the oil in a large saucepan on a medium-low heat. Roughly chop the onion and garlic, add them to the pan along with the ginger and sauté for about 10 minutes or until the onion begins to soften. Add the peas and broccoli to and sauté for a further 5 minutes. Add the stock and season to taste.

Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally so the soup doesn’t burn. Remove from the heat and stir through the coconut milk and mint. Using an immersion (hand) blender or food processor, blend until smooth.

Top with a sprinkling of lentils, pumpkin seeds, mint and some seasoning and a drizzle of oil, along with toast on the side.
