This is a wonderfully aromatic dish that uses an abundance of spices, resulting in a curry-like delicacy. It can be served warm with a mix of basmati and wild rice or at room temperature as a side dish.

Lovage looks like flat-leaf parsley but tastes like intense celery. Use it sparingly and you’ll find it adds tons of character to salads, lentil dishes and creamy sauces. If you can’t get hold of it, substitute with coriander or tarragon.
