Sophie’s carrot lentil & ginger soup

A good-for-you lentil, ginger & carrot soup!

I am still on my holiday but I had to post this terrific tasty soup. It is so good,..Test it for yourself!
This is one tasty & easy soup to make. I made this with leftovers in my fridge & pantry. You can add or substitute whatever you like. When the soup is ready to savour, I sprinkle a bit of Pimentón, smoked paprika powder, the picanté version on top of the soup & mingle it all over the surface of the soup for a lovely added bite!

Print me!

Recipe: For 4 larger soup bowls
Ingredients:
1 large red onion, peeled & finely diced
2 fat cloves of fresh garlic, peeled & finely diced
500 gr of young carrots, peeled, top & ends removed & diced into rounds ( weighted with peel on )
1500 ml of a good vegetable stock
1 teaspoon of ground cumin powder
1 teaspoon of fennel seeds, grinned in a pestle & mortar
a 2 cm x 2 cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled & finely cut up
200 gr of dried red lentils ( not from a can )
a few finely grinds of black pepper
a fruity EVOO
** To serve: a few pinches of pimentón picanté powder
gluten-free  & dairy free minarine
fresh baguette pieces or freshly baked gluten-free baguette, torn in pieces

Method:
1. Take a large cooking pot with fitting lid or a steam cooker pot. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of the fruity EVOO & let it heat up on medium high heat. When hot, add the pieces of red onion & garlic. Sweat the onion & garlic for about 5 minutes. Add the cumin, finely grinned fennel seeds, carrots & ginger pieces. Fry for about 1 to 2 minutes. Stir often.
2. Add the lentils, vegetable stock & a few grinds of black pepper. Stir everything around & put the heat up on high. If you use a steam cooker or pressure cooker, place the fitting lid on & let the pot sit on the high fire for about 15 minutes. When the valve is making a lot of noise, turn the heat off & place the cooking pot carefully on another unheated heat & with the help of a wooden spoon , set the air free. Wait until the valve is completely air free & take away the fitting lid. Taste the soup. It has to taste fab! If you don’t have a pressure cooker, boil the soup until all the veggies are tender & cooked through on medium high heat. Mix the soup completely & ladle into large soup bowls. Garnish with a few pinches of Pimentón picanté & enjoy with some good pieces of fresh baguette & some minarine.
