Lentils are yummy, good for you and CHEAP. I can’t do any better than that people.
Karen’s Easy Lentil Soup
1 onion (chopped)
1 medium carrot (chopped)
1 celery stick (chopped). Let the rest of the bunch go off in your crisper and throw it out in three weeks’ time.
Fry those three things with a little oil, when it’s soft, add 1 teaspoon of ground cumin and 1 teaspoon of ground coriander. Now’s the time to add a little bit of chilli if you want.
Add 1 cup red lentils.
Add 3 cups of vegetable stock. You can get the kind Manu peddles if you want but a few cubes in hot water will do the trick and leave you with $5 for a coffee tomorrow.
Add half a bottle of Passata or a tin of tomatoes if that’s what you have in your pantry.
Cook on a low heat for about 20 minutes or until the lentils are soft.
Karen notes ‘This does make rather a lot but it’s jolly nice to pop in the fridge and then simply re-heat over the course of the week.’ Sit back and think about how well you’re doing in life.
