I signed up to leave a review on this. It’s absolutely delicious and so simple to prepare. Absolutely what I was looking for. I used 1.5l stock and it was neither thick or runny.
A yummy soup with a little kick
• 1 tbsp olive oil
• 350g red lentils
• 3 small onions
• 2 x beef stock cubes
• 1 litre water
• 1 tsp chilli powder (optional/to taste)
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• salt and pepper to taste
In a big pan add the olive oil and onions and fry until soft. Meanwhile use the water and cubes to make 2litres of beef stock.
Once the onions are soft add the chilli powder and garlic and stir around for a minute, then add the lentils and the beef stock.
Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins, blend with a hand blender (or not - your choice) add salt and pepper to taste, enjoy.
