Simple Red Lentil and Tomato Soup


1 tbsp coconut or olive oil

1 large red onion

2 garlic cloves

2 tsp ground cumin

700g cherry tomatoes

200g red lentils

2 vegetable stock cubes

Small bunch fresh parsley/coriander (optional)

Black pepper


  1. Finely chop the red onion and garlic
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes until lightly golden
  3. Add the cumin and mix thoroughly for 1 minute
  4. Add the tomatoes and cook over a high heat, stirring frequently until the tomatoes turn into a bit of a mush
  5. Rinse the lentils well and add to the pan
  6. Make up the stock using the stock cubes and 1 litre of boiling water. Stir to combine before adding half of the stock to the pan. Leave the lentils to cook until soft, about 15-20 minutes, adding more stock if required to loosen the mixture in the pan
  7. Once the lentils are soft, add the remaining stock and, using a stick blender, whizz to a smooth consistency
  8. To serve, add a few twists of black pepper and sprinkle with chopped herbs
  9. Enjoy!
