  1. In a saucepan over a medium heat, melt the butter then add the onion. Cook and stir for 5 minutes until soft. Add the potato, carrot and lentils and toss in the butter. Add the tomatoes, stock and seasoning and simmer for 30 minutes until the lentils are cooked.
  2. Blend the soup using a hand held liquidiser. Serve in warm bowls with Parmesan cheese, croutons and a splash of double cream.

Parmesan cheese

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
