Red lentil and Carrot soup | Recipe

This is a simple, tasty and filling recipe with not a lot of work required. Perfect for everyone in the family, babies included although for them I would consider lowering the amount of stock cubes used in the stock and taking away the chilli powder. I got my inspiration for this recipe from, bbcgoodfoods; https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/red-lentil-carrot-soup .

Prep time; 5-10 mins                                  Cooking time;30-40 mins


  • 175 g Red lentils

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves 

  • 3 carrots, chopped

  • Olive oil

  • 1L of vegetable stock

  • Half a teaspoon of chilli powder

  • Petit pans/bread (optional, to serve)


  • Pour a generous amount of olive oil into your pan and then add the onions and garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

  • Add your carrots into the pan an cook until soft (a further 5-10 mins)

  • Add your lentils and stir it all in, then ad your 1L of stock cube made per packet instructions.

  • Add your chilli, lower the heat and let it simmer for 30-40 mins or until everything is cooked through.

  • Take your pot off the heat and blend using a hand blender or eat as is.

Serve with bread or eat it on its own.

Hope you enjoy it all to the last drop.

So, until next time...
