Lentils with red pesto

An easy and delicious recipe from veganx: Pasta with red lentil sauce.

 The recipe is in Swedish so here is my version (I hope you don't mind my shamelessly using your recipe, Emmélie):

1 leek
2 cloves of garlic
1 red chilli
2 carrots
4 tomatoes
1 cup red lentils
4-5 cups of vegetable broth
3 tablespoons of vegan red pesto
2 tablespoons of soy cream
150 g frozen spinach
salt, pepper, paprika powder
olive oil for frying

chop the veggies finely and fry in a bit of olive oil. Add lentils and stir till they are covered in oil. Add broth and chopped tomatoes and simmer for about 10 min. Use more water if you need to. Add pesto, seasoning and cream. Add the spinach and let simmer for another 5 min. Serve with any kind of pasta or rice.
