Lentil and Tomato Soup

Wednesday, 28 December 2016

A hearty and satisfying soup, sprinkled with grated cheese - this is a meal in itself......

small onion 1
Tomatoes 8oz (225g) I used to large Beef Tomatoes
Oil 2 tbsps
Lentils 4 ozs (100g)
Tomato Juice 1/2 pint  = 2 cups (I used 1 pint = 4 cups)
Vegetable Stock 1.1/2 pints - 3 cups....(I used 1 pint = 2 cups)
Thyme 1/2 tsp
yeast extract 1/2 tsp
salt and pepper to taste

Chop the onion and tomatoes. Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onion until transparent. Add the remaining ingredients, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.Adjust seasoning to taste.

I did blend the soup but you dont have to do that. Serve cheese on top if so desired and/or serve with nice crusty bread or toast.


Every Blessing,
