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.

180 ml dark rum (Walton uses Kraken Black Spiced Rum) 1 cup (firmly packed) mint leaves 2 lemons, thinly sliced To top up: soda water and ice   Ginger syrup 75 gm ginger, coarsely chopped 250 gm caster sugar 125 ml (½ cup) lemon juice 15 gm runny honey ½ long red chilli, seeds removed, coarsely chopped 500 ml (2 cups) filtered water

Method

  • 02
  • Combine 250ml ginger syrup in a jug with rum, mint and lemon and use a rolling pin or muddler to muddle slightly. Top up with ice cubes and soda water to taste and serve.
