Ingredients
  1. 2 - 3 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 2 onions - chopped
  3. 4 celery stalks (including the leaves) - chopped
  4. 3 large carrots - chopped
  5. 2 teaspoons of minced garlic or 2 garlic cloves - chopped
  6. 1 litre vegetable or chicken stock
  7. 2 cups lentils - rinsed & drained
  8. 2 cans of diced tomatoes
Optional (extra vegetables can be added of your choice)
  1. 2 cups of cabbage - chopped
  2. 1 cup eggplant - chopped
  3. Shallots
  4. Leek
Instructions
  1. In a heavy large saucepan heat the oil and add the onions, celery, carrots, and garlic (and other vegetables); sauté until vegetables begin to brown for about 15 minutes.
  2. Add the stock, lentils, canned tomatoes and bring to boil.
  3. Place a lid and reduce heat to a simmer until lentils are tender - about 35 minutes.
  4. Use a stick/hand blender and puree until smooth. If too thick, thin soup with a little boiling water from the kettle.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and serve with some toasted bread.
Notes
  1. Lentils need to be either left soaking overnight or the quick method includes 1 cup of lentils to 3 cups of water; bring to boil and simmer for 30 minutes.
