RECIPE - Lentil and Tomato Soup

This soup is syn free on Extra Easy, really filling and very easy to make.

250g red lentils
1 tin chopped tomatoes
3 onions
4 carrots
1 swede
1 bay leaf
2 ham stock cubes
Salt & Pepper

  1. Add a kettle full of boiling water to your soup pot along with the ham stock cubes
  2. Add the lentils and tomatoes to the water
  3. Roughly chop the onion, carrot and swede and add
  4. Add the bay leaf and seasoning
  5. You may wish to add more water, depending on how thick you like your soup
  6. Simmer for about 45 minutes, then blend
  • For an easier soup, buy a pack of cubed carrot and swede instead of chopping your own
  • This also tastes great when you add 2 rashers of bacon at the start of cooking (just remove all fat and roughly chop the meat - no need to grill it first)
