I’m always making this soup for my lunches at work, I often stick a pan on while I’m getting ready for bed and in half an hour its ready to go!
I always use red lentils, apple, onion and sweet potato, but I often vary the other ingredients I use depending on what I have in the fridge that needs using up. In this recipe I used the stalk of a broccoli head that was left over- most people throw the stalks away but I like to save them for soup.
Soup is amazing because its cheap, quick, nutritious and filling. So get clever and make soup!
