You won’t be getting the daily gram of protein per pound of body weight you should by eating only lentils, but you will get plenty of fibre and complex carbohydrates. That makes this soup both nutritious and delicious. I suggest serving it with a large steak.
Time: 40 minutes
400g green lentils
2l vegetable stock
400g shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix
100g miso paste
10g fresh ginger – finely chopped or grated
20ml rice vinegar or fresh lemon juice
1 sheet nori – chiffonade
Togarashi – optional
Place lentils and stock in a pot on high heat. Once a boil is reached, reduce to simmer for fifteen minutes.
Stir in the cabbage, miso and ginger, the. bring to a boil again. Reduce to simmer for ten minutes.
Remove from heat, stir in the vinegar and serve garnished with nori and togarashi.
