Tomato, lentil and vegetable soup


1 cup of red lentils, rinsed
1 tin of plum tomatoes
1 onion, choppped
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 sweet potato (or carrot) diced
2 sticks of celery, chopped
a handful of pasta
10 fresh sage leaves (or 1/2 a teaspoon of dried)
1 teaspoon of Vecon Stock or other stock of choice
handful of greens, chopped (we used kale)
black pepper
salt to taste

Place the lentils in a large pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and turn down to simmer. Prepare the vegetables and add to the pan with the tomatoes, pasta, stock and herbs – add more water if you need, if too thick. Cook at a low simmer until veg and pasta are tender, (probably about 20 minutes). Add the greens for the last couple of minutes of cooking time and season to taste.

  1. Hi Lucy!
    I’ve messaged you a few times before, but I would just like to say that I hope you never take your blog off the internet even if you get tired of blogging. It is my happy place. I miss all of the old blog too but I’m grateful to have this. I remember when you. Had SO much stuff on the blog and you also had a link to a friend who had a good blog. I think it was from her or possibly you that I first learned about Lush. What a revelation!!!! Thank you so much for giving me this joy!
    With great affection,
    Leigh Rogers
