Emergency Soup

SoupNothing to eat in the fridge? Unexpected guests? This soup can be knocked up using kitchen cupboard ingredients. Most of the cooking time is spent waiting so it’s a good one to make if you have other stuff to do in or near the kitchen. If you have an onion, chop it up and fry it in some olive oil in a medium pan until soft. If you don’t have one, don’t worry, it doesn’t matter! Add a small clove of garlic, thinly sliced, and cook for just a minute or two (don’t burn the garlic or it will taste bitter). Throw a couple of handfuls of red lentils into the pan with some boiling water and simmer for 20 mins or so until they are really soft. Top up the water if needs it. When the lentils start breaking down add a can (or two if there are lots of you) of tomatoes with some freshly ground pepper and continue to simmer until it looks like the right consistency for blending (another 10 mins). Whizz it up with a hand blender and serve piping hot with a swirl of vegan cream and a slice or two your favourite bread.  Better than Heinz!

    Looks tasty! When I was a poor student I made an emergency meal out of tinned-peas and lasagne sheets. Yours looks much nicer!
