Spiced carrot and lentil soup

  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 600g carrots washed and coarsely grated (no need to peel)
  • 140g split red lentils
  • 1litre hot vegetable stock (from a cube is fine)
  • 125ml reduced-fat coconut milk

Utensils

  • Large saucepan
  • Stick blender or food processor

How to make the soup

Step 1

Heat a large saucepan and dry-fry the cumin seeds and chilli flakes until they start to jump around the pan and release their aromas. Scoop out about half of the seeds with a spoon and set aside.

Step 2

Add the oil, carrot, lentils, stock and milk to the pan and bring to the boil.

Step 3

Simmer for 15 mins until the lentils have swollen and softened.

Step 4

Whizz the soup with a stick blender or in a food processor until smooth (or leave it chunky if you prefer).

Step 5

Season to taste, and finish with a dollop of yoghurt and a sprinkling of the reserved toasted spices.
