How to make it

  • Heat butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and carrots and cook for a few minutes, stirring. Add the garlic in a space in the middle of the pan and cook for another minute, stirring.
  • Add the stock, lentils and tomatoes, and bring just to the boil. Simmer with the lid slightly ajar for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Using a hand blender, puree the soup leaving it slightly chunky, then add the cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat another five minutes.
  • For variation, add some curry powder or ginger for a different flavour. Extra tomato adds more tang and reduces the need for salt.
  • Serve with anything you like - crusty bread and butter, sour cream, yogurt, chopped parsley or grated parmesan.

    Hi there
    We had a movie and soup night at our permaculture meeting yesterday and it was the first to go by a long shot. Everyone wanted the recipe, and even the kids got stuck into it!
    Thanks for your post.
