    I love this soup so much, I just had to share the recipe:

    Serves 8. Can easily be halved but I make a big batch and freeze it.
    Free on green and extra easy.


    Two onions
    3 sticks celery
    3 cloves garlic
    2 large butternut squash
    3 large carrots
    6 handfuls dried red lentils
    Veg stock

    Chop up all the veg.
    Spray a large pan with frylight. Soften the onions, celery and garlic for 5-10 minutes, add a tiny splash off water if it starts to stick.

    Add the carrots and squash, stir and cover. Let the veg sweat for 10 mins, stirring occasionally.

    Add the red lentils and put in enough stock to just cover the veg. You can add more but I like it really thick.

    Cook for 45 mins or so. Blend and enjoy!

    I like mine served with SW Chips to dunk in. Also good with a blob of cottage cheese on top. Sounds weird but very tasty!

    Thank you for posting - I'm enjoying making soups myself.

    At the mo I'm eating one I made on Saturday - butternut squash, leeks, carrots, chilli pepper and chilli powder - Ooh, the chilli has matured over the last few days :D

    I bought some lentils on Saturday to start throwing into my soups. Like the thought of making a portion of wedges on the side - thanks for the tip! :eating:

    Sounds great! I always put some lentils in my soups - really good source of protein and helps to add a little body too. Yum yum yum x
