Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

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.

  • Place trout on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with remaining olive oil, season to taste and roast until just cooked through (6-7 minutes). Carefully remove skin (discard) and scatter with beetroot, radish, carrot tops (if using), dill, fennel fronds, snow-pea tendrils and pumpernickel crumbs. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and serve.
