3/4 Cup Lentils ( you can use any colour!)
1 can of tomatoes –
1 Large onion –
1 vegetable stock cube-
Cumin and coriander – 1 tsp each
a pint of water.
(optional 1 carrot)
Serves 6 (as a starter) or 4 as a main.
Rinse out your lentils, i used red. It took 3 rinses and a soak for 3 mins then i used 3/4 a pint of water and brought it to the boil.
once it boils simmer it with a lid for 10 mins, meanwhile you can prep your onion and tomatoes and add them in, total cooking time should be 15-20 mins until soft.
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.
