Lentil Soup

IP - Lentils 1

IP - Lentil 2

We've all been sick so I made soup. Nothing better to fill bellies and warm hearts.


Lentil Soup

1 medium onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp ground coriander seeds

1 tsp ground cumin seeds

5-6 stalks of celery, finely diced

1.5 litres of warm water

250g red lentils, rinsed


On medium heat fry the spices, onion and garlic until soft.

Add the celery and cook for a few more minutes.

Add the water and lentils.

Bring to the boil.

Simmer gently for 40 minutes.




P.S. I'm off on an adventure with my girls for the next couple of weeks. I'll tell you all about it when I get back.
