@Warda, certainly! We don't see why not. Give it a go with frozen spinach and let us know how it goes.

Hi Gulsom, Yes you can either divide the ingredients by 4 to make just one serve, or to save time and hassle, we recommend you simply make the full recipe for 4 and you can simply freeze any leftover portions to have on hand for easy meals. Enjoy!

I loved this... Reminded me of my mums Mediterranean soup she makes with lentils... Incorporating this to my diet once a week for dinner!!! Would like to know how many calories it has though...

I made this with venison fillet - superb with a beautifuly rich flavour. It will definitely go on to my favourites list. (Cauli and Broccoli to accompany it).
