EA's Wonderful Soup

My friend EA gave me this recipe as I have been in bed with bronchitis for quite some time now and not eating well enough. It is a lovely lentil soup with ginger, and as EA said: "The ginger is comforting when feeling a bit queasy". I quite agree.

1 onion, 1 leek and as much garlic as you like, all fried soft in olive oil or rapeseed oil

add 3 cm of ginger cut into pieces, some vegetable stock, a tin of crushed tomatoes, 200 ml of lentils (softened in water for a couple of hours before cooking), two stalks of celery cut into pieces (a little chili if you like) and water to make a nice consistency. Cook until everything is tender, add more water if needed, run in blender.  Serve with sprouts on top.
