Default Turkish Spinach and Lentil Soup

1 tsp olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
salt, black pepper and cayenne to taste
pinch dried rosemary (or more, to taste)
2 cups (more or less) stock or water
1 1/2 cups cooked or canned lentils
1/4 cup raw bulgur
1 tomato, chopped
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped

Saute onion, garlic and spices for a few minutes, till softened. Add stock or water, bulgar, tomato, and tomato paste, simmer 5-10 minutes. Add lentils and spinach, cook till heated through and spinach is wilted. Add extra water or stock to reach desired consistancy.

2 huge filling bowlfuls, about 4-5 points per.
