Spicy Lentil Soup

Serves 4

We made this in a slow cooker, but it could also be made in a large pan.

Ingredients

  • 100g dried red lentils
  • 1 litre of vegetable stock
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 100g mild curry paste
  • 2 small carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 140g Greek yoghurt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander

Instructions

  1. Rinse the lentils under cold water until the water runs clear; drain.
  2. Combine the lentils, stock, tomatoes, bay leaves, garlic, curry paste, carrot, celery and potato in a 4.5 litre slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Season to taste.
  3. Divide into bowls. Top with the Greek yogurt and sprinkle with the black pepper and coriander. 

For a non-vegetarian option, use chicken stock instead of vegetable.
