Lentil Soup GF SCD

Lentil Soup

We rarely ever run out of dried lentils, onions and carrots and this soup is one of our favourite soups. Full of flavour with heaps of plant protein, lentil soup is economical and very simple to prepare.

2 leeks or 2 large onions 
3 medium carrots
180g red lentils
800ml vegetable stock or filtered water
2 tsps dried parsley or 2 - 3 tblsps chopped fresh parsley 
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil

  • Slice the leeks or onions.
  • Heat a tablespoon of extra virgin oil in a large pan then gently fry the leeks for a couple of minutes.
  • Slice the onions and tip into the pan. Fry gently for about five minutes until translucent.
  • Slice the carrots and add to the pan.
  • Wash the red lentils.
  • Tip the lentils into the pan.
  • Add the dried parsley but if you are using fresh parsleys don't add it yet.
