This week’s Saturday Kitchen is brought to you with a delicious and hearty soup that even my brother likes and even makes for himself!
Spicy Tomato & Lentil Soup
8oz red lentils
1 tin tomatoes
8 cups cold water
1-2 tablespoons tomato puree
3 teaspoons veg bullion or 2 veg stock cubes
4 cloves garlic
2 sticks celery
1 tablespoon: basil & oregano
Chillies (to taste, if you don’t like spicy, leave them out)
3 bay leaves (leave whole to remove at end)
Chop everything that needs chopped, put in slow cooker, put on high and leave for 3hrs or low and leave for 5-6hrs.
If making in a pot on the stove, chop, put in pot. Bring to boil then simmer for 1hr.
Remove bay leaves, blend and serve
