A healthy hearty end to the day, it’s a spicy thick Red-Lentil soup with tonnes of goodness, did I mention its low-fat, but you could never guess! It takes like it has cream in it!
 
The Flavours are so gentle that it’s really a ‘get well soon’ soup. I wish I could change the URL of the link to say that but, hindsight! The soup is super easy to make all you’ll need is 15 minutes and a saucepan.

Instructions
  1. Rinse out your lentils, I used red lentils as I'm convinced they have a different flavour. It took 3 rinses and a soak for 3 mins.
  2. Then use 3/4 a pint of water and brought it to the boil.
  3. Once it boils simmer it with a lid for 10  mins, meanwhile you can prep your onion and tomatoes and add them in.
  4. Total cooking time should be 15-20 mins until soft. Blend, Done.

It really is that simple, if you need more water add it, personally I love thick soup! I finished mine with toasted whole grain croutons, sweetcorn (1tbsp for 1 portion) and chopped coriander.

 Why use lentils?

Lentils are a great source of fibre, vitamins, carbohydrates (without the starch and fats). They are filling and cheap to buy! Lentils can be used to make tonnes of different foods, Curry and lentil pie! In replace of rice, as a burger, as a thickener for soup! Low calorie!!
