1. Bring 1.5l water to a boil, add lentils and cook until just soft (ca 20-25 min). Drain the lentils thoroughly in a colander or sieve.
2. While the lentils are cooking, finely chop the shallots and, if preferred, cut the mushrooms into smaller pieces. In a large pan, fry both in olive oil for 3-4 min (onions should not be brown) and season with salt and pepper. Mix the stock cube in 1dl hot water and add to the vegetables in the pan. Switch off the heat.
3. Mix in the lentils, the vinegar and ¾ of the spinach. Serve up on plates, garnished with the rest oft he spinach and chives.
