We start the soup by toasting warm spices - cumin, coriander, turmeric and nutmeg - and frying them with a paste of garlic, ginger and onion.
We then add tomatoes, lentils, miso paste, coconut cream and water and simmer till the lentils have collapsed into a puree. Just before dishing up, we stir in chopped kale, just to wilt it, and a scattering of fresh coriander leaves and a squeeze of lemon to balance.
LOW CARB OPTION: Spiced cauliflower 'rice' with peas.
SMALL: Defrost before reheating. Reheat gently in a saucepan or microwave, stirring occasionally, until piping hot, adding water if required.
INDIVIDUAL: Reheat in the microwave, from 2 minutes (from defrosted) to 4 minutes (from frozen), stir, then heat for a further 3 minutes, or until piping hot.
Defrost information: defrost overnight in the fridge. For a quick defrost, place in a sink of warm water and ensure that the defrosted dish then reaches 70C (piping hot) within two hours of beginning the defrosting process.
