About this recipe: This is a really cheap easy to make soup that has a lovely wholesome comforting taste and can be knocked up in a few minutes. Simple ingredients, healthy and nutritious. Have had many satisfied consumers who can't believe how easy it is to make! Tastes like chicken soup without the chicken! Or if you want-chuck in some left over bits of chicken or turkey.


  • 1 medium onion-chopped small
  • 2 medium carrots-sliced
  • 1 medium potato -chopped smallish
  • 2 spilling handfuls red lentils
  • 2 chicken stock cubes+1.5 pints of boiling water
  • seasoning -pepper
  • tablespoon olive oil-extra virgin


  1. Fry the onion in oil for 5 mins in a large saucepan or stock pot. Add all other ingredients and then pour over a pint and a half of the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for approximately 40 mins. If the mixture is too thick simply add more water-adjust to taste. Either leave as a chunky soup or hand blend it for a smoother finish! Simples.


Serve with chunky crusty bread. Go easy on the salt as the stock cubes have a lot of salt in.
