I need inspiration.

I don't have to put them together, but am open to suggestion...

What culinary delights can I whip up?

Lentil and spinach soup. Divine. Do you have any ground cumin about your person, which is necessary, though?

Dahl with spinach

Wash the lentils, cover with water, add a teaspoon of turmeric then boil till they turn yellow. (do not add salt till they are cooked)
Seperately, chop up an onion and fry up with oil & a tablespoon of curry paste.
Add onion mixture and a dash of milk & spinach.
Cook till spinach softens.

I had it this evening (sans spinach) with rice & chicken curry. yum!!

MerylStrop I LOVE Steve's spiced lentils, where did you find that from? I have a tattered old photocopy of a photocopy I am terrified of losing! Tethers end it's o tasty and definitely worth the faff, plus freezes really well.

DH made it from a recipe cut out from a magazine. He cooked it for dinner on our first proper date.

We have been together nearly 13 years, so it is a good job we stuck it in a book one wet Sunday afternoon. We still make a vat of it once a month at least.

I googled it and it pinged up quite easily.
