As winter is closing in everyone starts to crave a bowl of warm, comforting soup. This is a really healthy recipe so great if you are pregnant, very low fat so perfect if post pregnancy and can even be used for weaning (Which I am looking forward to trying out in 2 months time!). I would like to say this is my own recipe however it is from the Vegetarian Bible, that is Rose Elliot's 'New Complete Vegetarian'.
So fry 1 onion in olive oil for about 5 minutes until lightly browned, add 8oz of red lentils and 1 litre of vegetable stock, then simmer for around 20 minutes. Simple! Take off the heat and blend. If you want add lemon juice, salt and pepper.
To make this baby friendly, simply make with water (not stock) and do not add salt and pepper.
If you want to make a batch for the family, I recommend making it baby friendly, taking out a portion before stirring in a stock cube and seasoning.
Let me know if any babies out there enjoy this soup!
