With only 4 ingredients, this soup is a perfect go to when you want quick and delicious food. To make a family-sized pot you’ll need:
1, 1/2 kg carrots
3 small beets
2 small onions
1 cup of lentils
Dash of olive oil
Salt, pepper, chilli & bay leaves to season
Start off by frying chopped onion until it starts to brown. Whilst your onion is sweating and browning, chop carrots (don’t worry about the size of the cut as the soup will be blended at the end) and beets add them into the pot.
Next add boiling water (this will reduce cooking time) so that it covers veggies with extra 6cm (2-3 inches) boiling water on top. Bring the pot to the boil, add lentils and seasoning. Simmer the soup for 25mins and blend until smooth. Voila!
I topped the soup with pumpkin seed oil & toasted seed & nut mix.
