    robd16's Note:

    Made for cold weather, this hearty warming soup hits all the right spots. The lime, mint and Greek yoghurt are essentials and compliment the earthy flavours of the garlic, cinnamon. ginger lentils and sweet potatoes perfectly. I've adapted this recipe from Sophie Grigson's vegetable book. Pure bliss in a bowl. . .
