Another workaday special. I know that Mum will be saying,”Everyone knows how to make lentil soup”, but here it is anyway.
2 onions, diced
3 carrots, peeled and roughly diced
1 potato, diced
a kettleful and a quarter of boiling water
3 teaspoons Marigold stock powder
three quarters of a mugful of red lentils
salt and pepper at the end
Put it all in a pan (except for the parsley) and let it come to the boil. Allow to bubble with a lid on for at least half an hour.
You may need to add a bit more boiling water as it thickens.
When it’s done, take it off the heat and use a hand blender to skoosh it up. Add some salt, if necessary, and lots of black pepper. Stir in some fresh parsley and sprinkle the rest over the top.
