    1. Add the extra virgin olive to a deep pan/crockpot. Bring to medium heat.

    2.  Add the onion and garlic and let them cook for 5 minutes until golden. Then add in the carrot, celery and pumpkin/sweet potato and cook for a further 5 minutes.
    3.  Add the broth, lentils, and pancetta (if using) to the pan and increase the temperature to medium-high heat. With the lid on, allow the soup to cook for 20 minutes.
    4.  Next, add in the chopped zucchini and a generous handful of spinach. Cook for a further 10 minutes.
    5.  Once cooked, remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve in bowls with toasted GF bread, sourdough or a side salad.
    6.  This soup freezes really well so is a great option for batch cooking.
