Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

Method

  • Dry-roast celery seeds and coriander seeds until fragrant (1-2 minutes), then set aside.
  • 02
  • Combine all ingredients in a heavy-based saucepan, bring to the simmer over high heat, then reduce heat to low-medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened (25-30 minutes. Transfer to sterile jars or bottles, seal and cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until required. Sauce will keep refrigerated for up to 3 months.
