Carrot, Lentil and Spinach Soup

Lentils make such a great base for soup as they are full of plant-based protein and general goodness. And once you add some veg, you are making a good food decision all round but still sitting down to a delicious soup. Whenever we test these recipes in the office, most of us end up putting aside lunch and eating this instead!
