It's New Year's Day (happy new year!) so hangover soup is the order of the day. My hangover is of the prosecco-red wine-beer variety. Cringe.
This soup is vegan, chunky, and full of red and orangey goodness. And it will bring you back if you are too far gone. I feel half human after a hot shower and a bowl of this.
3 large carrots, chopped
100 g red lentils
1 large onion
1 yellow pepper, chopped
tin chopped tomatoes
1.7 litre boiled water
2 veg stock cubes
half tsp salt
a grind of black pepper
a handful of wholemeal pasta
Chop the onion and fry off in a little oil in a big pot
Add the chopped pepper and fry a little more
Pour in the chopped tomatoes and boiling water
Add the lentils and carrots
Toss in salt, a grind of pepper and the stock cubes (crumbled)
Bring to the boil, then turn down heat and simmer for twenty minutes
Add the pasta, bring to the boil, then turn down heat and simmer for ten minutes
Serve on its own or with your favourite bread. Num num.
