Method

  1. Pick over the lentils and remove any stones. Rinse well.
  2. Heat the olive oil, with a twist of pepper, in a large pan over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add the onion and carrots. Sauté for a few minutes, until the vegetables have started to soften, then add the garlic, stir-fry until the garlic takes some colour.
  3. Add the lentils, bay leaf, and stock to the pot. Simmer over low-medium heat for 25-35 minutes, until lentils are softened.

Serving suggestion

Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice just before serving, serve hot with crusty bread.

Variations

Sprinkle with chili flakes for a spicier soup.
