Lentil Soup

    Description

    I learnt to make this as an au pair in Germany in the early 1960s. Cheap, low-fat and filling, and a family favourite.

    Method

    1. Chop up all the veggies. Put everything in a big pan. Bring up to a simmer and cook very gently about one hour, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn't catch. Add more liquid if you think it's needed - but remember this is a main meal and should be very thick.
    2. Liquidise all or part, or just mash with a potato masher.
    3. Can also be made in a pressure cooker - 25 minutes at full pressure.
    4. This is just the basic recipe, so feel free to be creative with ingredients - it's very flexible. I make this often as it uses things I always have in stock and is so incredibly easy.
    5. I add a little vinegar (balsamic or wine) to my plate, but my better half prefers Worcester sauce (but this would make it non-vegetarian, of course).

      Just made it...really mourish and lovely, although not being a fan of peppers i still added it and actually that's fine. On top of the Balsamic i popped a handful of raw spinach, then the hot soup, DE-I-LICIOUS!!!!!

      This is helping with my reduced FAT diet, infact it's virtually fat free isn't it??

      Just realised that my first reply to the comment went onto the site. What I forgot to say in my recipe was that we usually chop some smoked sausage into it after it is cooked. The first comment came from my beautiful vegetarian daughter, who of course doesn't do that, and it tastes good either way - thank you Abi!

      Nom nom nom! This lentil soup is ace - cheap, easy, versatile and flavourful. Eva is my mum, I learned to make it at her elbow and I still make it regularly, although peppers are evil and I leave them out. I sometimes make it extra thick and use the leftovers as a pasta sauce.


      By the way, it's possible to get veggie Worcestershire sauce. I buy it from my local kosher shop.
