Lentil Soup

Autumn this year, was just beautiful. I have truly enjoyed watching this month evolve into winter. So as I say goodbye to Autumn 2016. I wanted to share my favourite lentil soup. Its great for those cold winter days, and so easy peasy to make. My measurements are a little crazy, because it really doesn’t effect the general taste, if the measurement is a little up or down.

 

You will need :

2 handfuls of yellow or red lentils

1 handful of rice

1 Onion diced

2 teaspoons of Tomato Paste

a sprinkle of Mint

1 Chicken stock cube

1 Glug of olive oil
