I love soup and it’s a super filling soup for the coldest of days.
Lentils are really healthy and a great source of protein so I often add them to salad, soups and make them into pates. The soup is especially good if you’re not much of a cook or just want something really quick and simple but that tastes delicious too.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1kg carrots peeled and chopped
120g red lentils
1 onion, finely chopped
1 litre stock made with filtered water. (I use this as it is gluten free)
Handful fresh coriander chopped
Sweat the onion in the coconut oil for 5 minutes then add the carrot and sweat for a further 5 minutes. Add the stock and lentils and simmer for 45 mins until the carrots are tender and the lentils cooked.
Add coriander and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Blend together until smooth - depending on what you’re using to blend, you may want to let the soup cool slightly first.
Serve with a sprinkling of fresh coriander on top
