Carrot and Lentil Soup recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Lentils make this soup wonderfully thick and creamy - carrots, lentils, stock and spices are simmered together, then blended until smooth. Easy peasy! It's vegetarian friendly, too!


  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 190g red lentils
  • 1 onion
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 tsp. dried coriander
  • 1 pinch chilli powder
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Finely dice the onion and celery stalk. Peel and dice the carrots. Place the lentils, onion, carrots, celery, coriander, chilli powder and ground ginger into a large saucepan. Pour in the vegetable stock.

  2. Bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 25 minutes, or until the lentils and carrots are tender.

  3. Blend the soup until smooth using a hand blender or put it into a food processor. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve warm.

If you like, you could add a fresh chilli to the soup, or you could try experimenting with spices such as cumin and turmeric. Recipe serves 6.
