Carrot & green lentils soup

Ingredients:

  • 300g carrots
  • 1/2 sweet potato (or 1 small)
  • 1/2 potato (or 1 small)
  • 400g green lentils (from a can)
  • small piece of ginger
  • 1tsp chilli powder
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1tbsp sea salt
  • fresh parsley

Wash the carrots with cold water and peel  and slice them, repeat the same with the potato and sweet potato. (Choose the size or amount of potato according to your preference.)

Add the oil in a pot suitable for making soup, add carrots, potato and sweet potato and sauté for 3-5 minutes and then add enough water to cook all together.  Note, you can add more water later to adjust the consistency of the creamed mixture or finished soup (see below).

Add salt, chilli powder and stir. Peel the ginger and cut it into small pieces and add it to the pot.

Bring it to boil (approximately 20-30minutes). When cooked, use a blender to make a creamy mixture and then add another 1/2 glass of water and the lentils cook before cooking for 15-20 minutes after which it will be done.

You can add some fresh parsley on top.
