Recipe for vegan Carrot and Lentil Soup

  1. Heat the oil and chop the carrots and onions. Once the oil is hot, add the onions and carrots and stir regularly until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add the garlic, cumin, curry powder and thyme. Cook for about 30 seconds then pour in the drained diced tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes, stirring often, in order to enhance their flavor.
  3. Pour in the lentils, stock cube and cover in water. Cook for 25 minutes or until the lentils are tender.
  4. Put two cups of soup in a blender and blend until smooth. This is the secret that makes this soup so creamy and yummy! Re add this to the saucepan of soup and stir in.
  5. Remove the stalks from the cavolo nero then add to the soup, keep on heat for another couple of minutes or until the greens have softened.
  6. Add lemon juice, black pepper and salt to taste.
  7. Allow to cool fully before storing in fridge or freezer.
