First Day of Winter

Winter is finally here, now bring on the cooler weather! I think this lentil soup will be my favourite this season.

Lentil Soup
(serves at least 6 people)

olive oil
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)
black pepper

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.


  1. Looks good in its simplicity, and minimalistic styling. :)

    1. I know you can't quite call it winter, but that's what we're supposed to be having here in Australia ;-)
