Easy Lentil Soup Plus

This week I made myself a new version of my two-pot vegetable soup,

Lentil Soup Plus
  • black and brown lentils
  • celeriac
  • carrots
  • squash
  • onion
  • sweet potato
  • vegetable oil and seasonings
I don't measure.  Sorry, but it all decides on how much you need and how large your pots are and how large the veggies are and what mood you're in.  This is a very easy recipe. Think flexible! 
A couple of hours before cooking...
  • check lentils for stones or bugs
  • put in pot and add boiling water and cover and leave for a bit
  • add more boiling water and then cook on stove
  • prepare your vegetables for the food processor or cut them up yourself

  • put the vegetables in a pot after cutting or shredding
  • add some oil and saute
  • then pour in the cooked, or almost cooked, lentils and some more boiling water until pot's pretty full, cover and then simmer for at least 40 minutes
  • season with salt, pepper and whatever
  • cook another few minutes
  • turn off and leave for at least 15 minutes
And it's ready and delicious!
