Chunky Vegetable and Lentil Soup


Chunky Vegetable and Lentil Soup

Urggh Frustrating Day – work has “upgraded” my laptop with Windows Vista so even trying to type a document. Just formating a simple document means hours tracking down all the standard functions under cutesy irritating graphics – its time to go Mac.

To calm myself at lunchtime made an incredibly easy and satisfyingly chunky lentil and vegetable soup , though I have used leek and carrot you can happily use any vegetable carrots and leeks provided just the right amount of chopping to calm my temper.

Chunky Vegetable and Lentil Soup

Chunky Vegetable and Lentil Soup

2 Carrots
2 Leeks
3 cloves of Garlic
30g of Red Lentils
Few sprigs of thyme
1 pint of warm Vegetable Stock
Salt and Pepper to Season

  1. Roughly chop carrots & leeks .
  2. Except for a the top green parts of the leeks , fry off the carrots and leeks with little finely chopped garlic and thyme .
  3. Add the lentils and stock
  4. Cover and leave to simmer for 20 minutes on a low heat the lentils should go mushy. For the last few minutes add the green parts of the leek ,this add some nice colour and crunch
  5. Season with salt and pepper
  6. Serve and slurp

Eating it I could almost pretend I had come in from a wet walk across fields instead of a numb behind from my office chair
