    Hi all

    Just wanted to ask a quick question about lentils.

    I used to love making a soup that was basically passata (sieved tomatoes) and lentils with some stock cubes and pepper.

    I remember on WW it was really low in points and v filling but thinking about re-feed I'm not really sure what lentils are classed as (are they carbs?) and on what day do you think it would be ok to start having the soup?

    Any ideas would be gratefully received.

    I would leave it until the second week. Carbs are back in on day 3 or 4 but I would leave it until the second week. I love soups, I have them most days and I use red and green lentils.

    Wouldn't be too good if you did Tan! They're dried and have to be reconstituted before you can eat them. Lol! xx

    Hi Tanya

    Here is the recipie if you want to give it a go:

    In a big pan put the following:

    750ml to 1000ml of pasata (its like chopped tomatoes already all mushed up). It's normally on the pasta ailse in the supermarket

    Add about the same amout of water

    Add 2/3rds of a mug of red lentils

    Then add two veg or chicken stock cubes and salt and pepper to taste

    I sometimes add some garlic, mixed herbs or chopped basil

    Give it a good stir and heat it up on the hob til its almost at the boil then put a lid on the pan and let it simmer for about 30mins so the lentils can cook - keep giving it a stir every now and then.

    All done!

    If I can make it then anyone can

    LLxx
