  • Fry the leeks in 2 tbsp of oil for 5 mins, then add the celery, garlic, carrots and parsnips. Cook for 5 mins more, then stir in the lentils, tomato puree, chilli flakes and stock. Simmer for 25 mins - covered - until everything has softened. Stir in the kale and simmer for 5 mins uncovered. Season well.
