Something to Warm Those Toes

My go-to source for substantial, comforting soups has always been the first Avoca book and this one certainly hits the spot on a cold winter's day.

Tomato, Lentil and Orange Soup

50g butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 orange, zested and flesh chopped
50g red lentils
1 x 400g tin tomatoes
300ml vegtable stock ( I use Marigold boullion)
  • melt butter and cook onion for approx 10 mins until soft
  • add garlic for 1 min
  • add orange zest and flesh, lentils, tomatoes and stock
  • bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins
  • puree, adding more stock if it is to thick
