I love soup, and we do tend to eat a lot of it. It’s cheap, quick and easy to make and I can also hide all manner of veggies in it that Lex might not otherwise eat! We often have soups made from pulses, and this is a very tasty one using green lentils.
2 onions, sliced
175g green lentils
1 litre veggie stock (use a light one or it’ll overpower the lentils and spices)
1 tsp tumeric
small handful of corriander, roughly chopped
Begin by sauteeing the onions in some oil for a few mins. Then add the lentils and stock/tumeric. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins or so until the lentils are tender.
Blitz with a stick blender (or leave chunky) and serve with the corriander scattered on the top.
If you want to serve a spiced butter with it, then blend 1 clove garlic into 50g butter and add 1 tsp paprika, cumin seeds and chilli to it. Chill to re-set and then slice into the soup and let it melt. Very good with soft naan. Yummy!
