Recipe of the Week – 18th May 2015 – Alfie’s ’10 of your 5 a day’ Soup

  
This is a recipe devised by my eight year old son which gave us a bit of quality cooking time together. It is incredibly simple to make and can of course be varied depending on what is seasonal or in the fridge!

Serves 6

Ingredients

2 large potatoes, peeled and diced

2 carrots, peeled and diced

1 large parsnip, peeled and chopped

1 large onion, peeled and roughly chopped

1 yellow pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped

1 courgette, diced

1 aubergine, diced

50g mushrooms, chopped

100g frozen peas

2 sticks of celery, chopped

100g red split lentils

800ml good quality stock from bouillon

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp Herbes de Provence

Small bunch of fresh coriander, chopped

Method

1. Place all of the ingredients, except the coriander, in a large saucepan and bring to the boil before gently simmering for 15 minutes.

2. Add the coriander and carefully ladle the soup into a food processor or blender (you may need to do this in two batches). Blend to the required consistency (I prefer it to be a bit lumpy).

3. Serve immediately with fresh bread.
