Carrot, Lentil and Coriander Soup


I made this the other day and it was so good and healthy.

Ingredients: 
  • carrots - 8-10 I had lots in my Farm box, so thought this would be great
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1.2 l vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh coriander/cilantro
  • one cup small red lentils
Method:
  1. heat oil and add onions and carrots, then add spices
  2. add broth and lentils and simmer for 30-45 min until very soft
  3. use a hand blender to make into a puree
  4. then add fresh chopped fresh cilantro
Me and Jasmine loved it, in fact she had a little leftovers on her birthday 

Have a blessed week 

Love
