This is my favourite comfort food in winter. It’s healthy, tasty and very filling.

Ingredients: (serves at least 4)

2 cups of green lentils

1 large onion finely diced

2 cloves of finely minced garlic

a bunch of fresh coriander

1 large bok choy

olive oil


In a large pot, fry the onions and garlic in some olive till glazed.  Add 1 liter of water, a good amount of salt and the lentils. Let simmer while stirring from time to time until the lentils have broken down a bit. This should take about 50 minutes. Break the bok choy in rather big pieces and add them to the soup, then stir a bit till they get tender.

Squeeze lemon over the soup as you serve.
