Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 carrot, chopped

  • 2 onions, chopped

  • 1 turnip, chopped

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 sprig rosemary

  • 4 sprigs thyme

  • 1 ½ tbsp ground cinnamon *
  • Handful almonds *

Method

Step 1
Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the carrot, celery, onion and turnip. Leave to cook until softened, approximately six or seven minutes. Then add the garlic and mushrooms and cook for a further five minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2
Add the lentils to the pan, before pouring in the stock and adding the baby leaf, rosemary and thyme. Bring the mixture to the boil for a short while, then lower the heat and simmer for 45 minutes.

Step 3
Shortly before this time is up, take a second pan and place on a medium heat, frying the almonds in a small splash of olive oil. Pour on the cinnamon as they cook. Then add the cherry tomatoes and stir through until warm.

Step 4
Serve up the stew, adding the tomatoes and almonds on top.
