Leek and Green Lentil Soup

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Bunny Erica

A tasty and filling soup. You could make many alterations to the recipe depending on your taste - add a potato for soup a little thicker, substitute barley for some of the lentils, add a stick of celery. The miso paste is optional but it adds flavour without having to add too much salt and pepper.

This was easy & delicious! I thought it looked better before pureeing - it looked 'muddy' afterwards. but THE PICKY ONE didn't pick out the carrots - instead she had seconds! great recipe, Bunny Erika! Made for PAC 9/07.
