Sweet potato & lentil soup

Ingredients (6 servings)

3 tbsp olive oil

2 onions, grated

1 eating apple, peeled, cored and grated

20g pack coriander, stalks chopped

thumb-size piece fresh root ginger, grated

1.2l vegetable stock

Put the curry powder into a large saucepan, then toast over a medium heat for 2 mins. Add the olive oil, stirring as the spice sizzles in the pan. Tip in the onions, apple, garlic, coriander stalks and ginger, season, then gently cook for 5 mins, stirring every so often.
