Red lentil and Tomato soup
« on: April 15, 2012, 02:23:21 am »
Red Lentil and Tomato Soup
serves 4 to 5 medium portions or 3 large portions

1 onion cut into quarters
2 cloves garlic
20gm evoo
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 x 400gram can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon HM vegetable stock
200 grams of red lentils
1000 gm water
Method
Chop onion and garlic on speed 7 for 8 seconds.
Add evoo and cook on 100’ for 2 minutes  speed 2.
Add cumin and coriander and cook on 100’ for 2 minutes speed 2.
Now add tomatoes, lentils, stock and water then cook on 100’ for 30 minutes speed 2 reverse, once it starts to boil drop temp to 90’ and continue cooking.
Serve with crusty bread.

We quite often have this as a meal by itself as it is very filling and just the thing for a cold rainy day especially with Isi’s Portuguese bread rolls fresh from the oven.

members' comments Nice soup

Cuildh - Adding cashew nuts makes a delicious soup as well, just zap at the end if you want it nice and smooth.

JD - Played with this a bit, made as directed but with shorter chopping and longer sauteeing times then added 70g tomato paste, 40g umami paste, 1 tblspn Tenina's chicken stock powder at the end and cooked for another couple of minutes before adding 100g cream and blitzing the soup to a nice puree.

I had a play with this today also JD. We just can't help ourselves!!! I left out the coriander and added seasoning.  We also blitzed it and added cream. Very nice.  :)

Love The Old Country Roses Judy. I have this dinner set and several accessories. I've been collecting since I was 19yrs old and a newly wed.

Yes, it's a great looking dinner set Michele.  I also had a Noritake but have decided to give it to DD2 now instead of later as she is so into High Teas and fine bone china all of a sudden and it will be nice to see her get the pleasure from it. Even the silver cutlery we gave her as part of her wedding present came out on Mothers' Day (the children polished what was needed for the table) - I love how things keep going around and coming back into fashion.  It's been white crockery and stainless steel cutlery for quite a while now for the young ones (and not so young, I joined them) but there is nothing as elegant as the former.
