Our friends at Jenius Social know how to make a feast from a few simple things. The ingredients list here might look long, but after a minute rooting at the back of the cupboard we're confident that you'll find many of the below, or at least, some happy substitutions. I.e. the Broccoli, spinach and nuts are highly interchangeable. You can use any colour lentil, and use the spicing as a guideline. Follow your senses.
