I made freakin’ Lentil
Decided to go vegan/vegetarian and make something that was still tasty. It worked 🙂 It looked like crap, no question, but it smells lovely and is actually really tasty. It’s ridiculously healthy, so healthy your bowels practically quake at the mere sight and smell of the soup. Trust me – it really does taste really yummy… and even better with a hot buttered bread roll, or a few slices of garlic bread. It’s surprisingly filling, so you really only need a medium-sized bowl and the bread to fill you right up.
Good, healthy, tasty food for pregnant women too, hehehe.
Cook diced onions, crushed garlic, leeks and carrots
Add 4 cups vegetable stock, and bring to boil
Add 450 grams rinsed lentils and simmer covered.
After 1 hour, add crushed tinned tomatoes.
Then add in broccoli and chopped potatoes, and mixed herbs, salt/pepper.
Simmer covered. Stir regularly for another 1-2 hours until lentils break apart.
Lentil soup! This one was more like a stew, I’d have added more water in retrospect.
Lovely eaten with dinner rolls or garlic bread 🙂
