Serves – 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small brown onion, chopped
  • 1 x 400g  frozen vegetable Mix
  • 2 x 400g cans brown lentils, rinsed, drained
  • 1 x 400g can diced Italian tomatoes
  • 500ml (2 cups) vegetable liquid stock
  • 500ml (2 cups) boiling water
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 multigrain rolls, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and frozen vegetable mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until the onion softens.
  2. Add in the lentils, diced tomato, vegetable stock and water to the pan. Cover saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Then reduce heat to medium and simmer, partially covered, for 8-10 minutes or until the vegetable mixture is just tender. Add the parsley and stir until well combined.
  4. Taste and season with pepper.
  5. Ladle the soup among serving bowls and serve with the rolls, if desired.

Handy freezer tip: At the end of step 3, allow leftover soup to cool to room temperature. Transfer to an airtight freezer-proof container. Label, date, and freeze for up to three months. Thaw overnight in the fridge. Reheat and continue from step 3.
