Carrot and Lentil Soup with Fennel Seeds


It’s cold and wintery outside, and I like nothing better than a hearty, warming bowl of soup for lunch, to heat me up from the inside. This is one of my favourite recipes to enjoy on such blustery days as I want to stay cozy and warm in the house!

Serves 3-4

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • A little oil
  • 5 large carrots, peeled and grated
  • 100g red lentils
  • 1 ham stock cube
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tbsp fennel seeds, crushed
  • 1.5 ltr water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Lightly saute the onion and garlic till just starting to go golden, then add all the other ingredients to the pan, and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the lentils and carrot are tender.

It’s so easy to make, and the crushed fennel seeds add a delicious flavour to the soup that works really well.

I hope you’ll enjoy this lovely, warming soup. If you try it, let me know what you thought of it by leaving a comment below!
