Lovely Lentil Veggie Soup

Lovely Lentil Veggie Soup is not just baby food, it is seriously delicious for the bigger people too. You can easily make this a vegetarian dish, the meat component is very optional. I gave this to Harry for lunch and then sat down to enjoy some myself, but the little wriggler was climbing all over me for more.

It’s very hot here in Singapore, but as this recipe came from Mum, I cranked the aircon, rugged up, and pretended it was cold and wintery, just like at home.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat, sauté onion, capsicum and garlic until clear, add the meat if using, cook through.

  2. Add the sweet potato, stir to combine for 1 minute.

  3. Add the stock, tomato, lentils. Bring mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer partially covered for 15 minutes

  4. Add the broccoli and cauliflower, cook for a further 5 minutes.  Sprinkle with parsley.

  5. Divide any mixture you want for baby and puree to desired consistency.

  6. Add salt and pepper to the 'adult version' only

Recipe Hints and Tips:
