Carrot, coriander and lentil soup.

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. Carrot soup 1

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. Carrot soup 2

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.
