Vegetable Soup

Ingredients (6 servings)

1¼ cups green lentils

3 stalks celery, with leaves chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

400g can diced tomatoes

3 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon tomato paste

Grated parmesan and celery leaves, to serve

2 carrots, peeled, chopped

1 onion, chopped


Wash lentils under running water. Drain well. Place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil on high heat. Drain, rinse and return lentils to same pan.

Cover with 8 cups of water and bring to the boil again on high. Add remaining ingredients, except parmesan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer for 1 hr until the lentils are tender and the soup has thickened slightly.

Serve topped with grated parmesan and a few chopped celery leaves, if you like.
