I use to do this soup without the lentils but decided to add them for a different soup. Great on a cold rainy day and very healthy and filling to warm you up. As the weather gets colder I will be making a lot more soups.
Ingredients serves 4
1 Onion diced
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 Celery Stalk sliced
1 Carrot Sliced
1 Cup Green Beans
1/2 Tin Crushed Tomatoes Organic
1/2 Tin Organic Lentils Drained
1 Vegetable Stock Cube
1 Cup Water
3 Handfuls raw Pasta (*Cook separately to speed up soup)
1/2 Jar Basil Pasta Sauce or Passata (You can add a whole jar if you like lots broth)
1 Pouch Tomato Paste Salt Reduced
light pinch sea-salt, black pepper
Cook pasta in microwave bowl with water just covering the pasta for 8 minutes then keep
water to add to the soup as it thickens the soup.
To Cook on stove top :
Chop the remaining ingredients all equal size for even cooking.
Then add the stock and water. (*can use bone broth if you have it)
Add remaining ingredients including cooked pasta with pasta water to pot
simmer for 15 minutes until vegetables are cooked.
