Carrot and Lentil Soup

A chunky soup using lentils as a healthy protein source and our Authentic Garam Masala Blend for warming flavours.

Serves: 3
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

1 Onion-finely chopped
4 Carrots-finely chopped
1 400g tin/pack of lentils-drained
2.5 tsp Garam Masala Blend
3 Garlic Cloves-crushed
1 tsp Sugar
300ml Vegetable stock (can use a good quality vegetable stock cube)
1 tsp Salt
1tbsp Tomato Puree
Small handful of Coriander- roughly chopped

Add a couple of glugs of olive oil to a pan, add the onions, garlic and carrots and soften for around 10 minutes
Add the 2.5 tsp Garam Masala Blend and stir through
Then add the lentils, 300ml of stock, sugar, tomato and salt to season
Finally add the coriander
Bring to the boil and then turn down to a simmer
Cook for 30 mins, you will want to check it every 10 minutes and stir, you can add a little extra water if it starts to thicken too much
I like to leave it chunky but if you want it smoother, once cooled you can put it into a food processor and blitz
