Lentil Soup



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

fresh parsley

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.
