This hearty vegetarian soup has just a touch of spice certain to warm you up. Good with a spoonful of plain yogurt and crusty bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1–2 tsp curry powder
  • 5½ cups vegetable stock
  • ¾ cup red lentils
  • ½ cup tomato or multi-vegetable juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  

 

 

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, and carrots. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.

2. Add the garlic and curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Add the stock, lentils, and tomato juice.

3. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer for 25 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot.
