(serves at least 6 people)
3-4 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
1 brown onion, finely chopped
200g (1 cup) red lentils
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
2 vegetable bouillon cubes (or vegetable stock)
1. Heat oil in a large pot, add carrots and onion and cook for a few minutes.
2. Add lentils, chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock. Add water as much as necessary (I like thick soups and lentils will thicken the soup as they cook).
3. Simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables have soften. Serve warm.
