Curried lentil soup

This is a new 'make, freeze and take to work' lunch option I'm trying. Got a good bit of heat going on!


2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp curry powder
2 tsp coriander
2 tsp cumin seed
2 bay leaves
1 tsp salt
4 dried chillies, chopped
1/2 head of green cabbage, spring greens or similar, shredded
1/2 carrot or courgette, finely diced
1.5 litres vegetable stock or bouillon
2 cups green or puy lentils


Fry the onions in the oil until translucent and then add the garlic and other spices, mixed in together and fry for another couple of minutes, then add the greens and the carrot/courgette and continue to fry in the oil, stirring quickly until the greens reduce down. Now add the stock, then the lentils, bring back to a boil and then simmer for around 20 minutes or until the lentils are nicely soft.
