Carrot Lentil Soup

4 large carrots
4 ounces of orange lentils
1 large onion
2 large tomatoes
2 pints of vegetable stock.



Chop the onion into medium size pieces and place into a saucepan. A non stick pan is best.

Fry the onions until they are soft and translucent then add the carrots and all the stock and bring to the a boil.

Turn the heat down to a simmer and add the lentils, cover with a lid and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
The lentils will go soft and absorb most of the liquid.
 

Blend the soup in the saucepan with a hand blender and then add any extra liquid (either water or stock) to the thickness you want.

Add the tin of tomatoes and carry on blending until you have a smooth orange soup. The soup now is complete and should be brought back to the boil for a few moments to ensure the tomatoes are heated through.

Add any extra flavorings such as garlic or herbs but do taste the soup beforehand .
