750g Chana Dahl (a yellow lentil) - soaked overnight in a large bowl of water with 1/2 tsp baking soda, then drained
10 cups water and/or chicken stock. I used 2 cups strong chicken stock and the rest water, as that's what I had
2 diced onions
3-4 stalks celery, diced
Sea salt (be generous with this if you don't have Braggs)
Dried onion flakes or onion powder
Braggs or Tamari sauce
Left over diced cooked chicken
1 bunch spinach
Put soaked, drained grain in a large crockpot with the water/stock. Stock gives a better flavour than plain water.
Add diced onions and celery.
Add rest of ingredients except chicken and spinach.
Simmer all day in the crockpot.
1 hour or so before serving, add the chicken and chopped spinach, which will wilt nicely.
Serve alone, or with suitable crackers or toast. It really doesn't need anything else though, as it's very filling.
