    This recipe is from Weightwatchers, but my whole family like it and given Sarah’s love of pulses I thought I would share. I have simplified it a bit.

    1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
    1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped (optional)
    1 level teaspoon chili powder
    50g red lentils
    400g tinned tomatoes
    850ml hot water

    Soften onion for 5 minutes in a small amount of olive oil, then add the chilli, and the garlic if using. Cook until beginning to brown, about another 5 minutes.

    Add the lentils and stir well. Add the tomatoes and hot water (also optional stock cube and/or tomato puree and/or a little rosemary to taste, but I don’t use them).

    Simmer for 20 minutes, season to taste. Can be pureed if you like, but soup with some texture is more satisfying (Weightwatchers tip!).

    Eat.
