Autumn is upon and that means its soup time! I love making my own soup I get a real sense of achievement and something yummy to eat.

This is a really simple soup to make, its tastes great and fills you up.

  • 1 stick of celery diced
  • 1 cup of red lentils
  • Dried mixed herbs
  • Litre and a half of stock (I used chicken)
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • Seasoning

  • Fry the onion in a little olive oil for a few minutes then add the carrot and celery and cook for a further 5 mins.
  • Add the dried herbs and the lentils and stir.
  • Add the stock and bay leaves.
  • Bring to the boil and simmer for 40 minutes.
  • Blend to your liking.
  • Eat
I added a little black pepper to my bowl.

It’s keeps in the fridge for a few days and freezes well.
