There comes a point in the Christmas festivities when you simply long for simple dining. I’d reached my peak the day after Boxing day and jumped on my sledge to do a fast run back down to my normal with a big bowl of home made soup.
Using the ham stock carefully saved in the freezer, onions, carrots, lentils and coriander it was devine with many levels of flavouring, salty yes, but oh so delicious.
And plenty left for the following day.
On this occasion the recipe was,
2 onions, sweated in butter.
2 heaped teaspoons of ground coriander.
1 lb of carrots (approx)
1 mug of dahl lentils.
1 1/2 pints of ham stock
1 1/2 pints of water.
Add all the ingredients to the golden brown fried onions and simmer until the lentils are soft and then blitz.
