DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large saucepan and gently fry the prepared onion, garlic, carrot and celery, stirring gently, for 5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften.
  • Add the lentils, stock and boiling water. Season with salt and pepper to taste, stir and bring back to the boil.
  • Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes until the lentils are completely tender.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring another saucepan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet. Drain well and set aside.
  • Place the soup in a blender and process until smooth. Return to a saucepan and add the pasta.
  • Bring back to a simmer and heat for 2-3 minutes until piping hot. Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt. Season if necessary.
  • Serve sprinkled with chopped parsley. We also add a sprinkle of brewers yeast.
  • Tip: Avoid boiling the soup once the yogurt has been added. Otherwise, it will separate and become watery, spoiling the appearance of the soup.
