Soup By Request

Chilly? Tired? Feeling like you need something to fill you tummy with veggie goodness? I can heartily recommend this soup. We devoured this soup all week and even Playful Baby, who is currently teething, could be persuaded to partake is some bread dipping and soup devouring. 

When I popped a picture onto Instagram, I started a small soup related frenzy. It seems we're all currently feeling the cold. So, as promised, here is the recipe. 

'Request a Soup', Soup:

2 onions, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, smashed
2 sticks of celery, chopped
5-6 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
500 ml low salt stock (low salt for baby friendly, go wild for adult friendly)
75g red lentils
Handful of coriander, chopped


1.Chop onions and celery, smash cloves of garlic, and peel and chop carrots.
2. Sauté for about 10 mins in good oil (we use cold pressed rapeseed)
3. Add 500 ml stock and 75g lentils and leave to bubble gently for about 15 mins
4. Add fresh coriander and buzz with food processor or hand blender till its consistency you like (I like the Coriander to be broken up into the soup, you can sprinkle it on top)


~ Season as you wish for adults
~ Chilli, cumin and dried coriander are good additions

~ Serving this with cheese straws might be a new baby favourite round here.

Oh this looks scrumptious. We are all about lentil dal round here at the moment, this might be a welcome addition to the autumn table.

Some baby friendly cheese straws sound good too.

I think we'll try this tomorrow, without onion or garlic. Catering to Bubs and Oma who is on a strict diet.
