Kathleen's spicy lentil spinach salad

Kathleen's spicy lentil spinach salad

Spicy lentils with artichoke, tomato, and healthy spices like turmeric, garlic, coriander & mustard seeds, over a bed of fresh spinach greens. I wrote this recipe to compliment the JJ Virgin diet, specifically in cycle 1. ***Substitute additional broth for the vermouth, if following the Virgin diet.
