Ingredients

Optional:

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic (1 clove = ½ tsp dried)

Instructions

  • Get a pot, pop it on a low heat and add the olive oil.
  • Cut the carrots, onion and grate the garlic.
  • Throw them in the pot, cook for a minute or two and chuck the lentils in after.
  • Stir a little until the lentils are covered with oil (they open their pores which then tastes better).
  • Add the vegetable stock and yoghurt.
  • Let the soup simmer for 15-20 minutes on low heat.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the lemon juice.
  • Blend it with a hand blender if available, don't worry if you cant.
  • Ready (eat with bread, add your favourite herbs for variety, and some more yoghurt or sour cream)
