A handful of lentils will thicken soup to make it extra satisfying, as well as providing valuable protein.

Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Onion(s)

2 medium, chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Sweet potato(es), raw

600 g, chopped

Butternut Squash

1 whole, medium, peeled, deseeded and chopped

Split Red Lentils, dry

100 g

Chilli flakes

1 pinch

Fresh Vegetable Stock

1200 ml

Chilli, Green or Red

1 individual, finely sliced, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Mist a large lidded saucepan with the cooking spray, then gently stir-fry the onions and garlic with 4 tablespoons water until softened but not brown.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes and squash or pumpkin, along with the lentils, chilli flakes and stock. Cover and bring to the boil. (Add extra stock if you prefer a thinner soup.)
  3. Turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Cool briefly, then whizz in a blender to make a thick, smooth soup. Reheat if necessary, then season to taste and serve sprinkled with sliced fresh chilli and dried chilli flakes.

Notes

If you don't like your food too hot then you can simply leave out the chillies.
