Accessories you need



Do you ever have those “OMG I forgot to make dinner!” moments? Wouldn’t it be good to have a healthy pantry meal always on hand that you could get on the table in 20 minutes?

This is that dish, literally created in one of those moments when… “Whoops, who are these hungry people asking me what’s for dinner? Gah!” I stood at the pantry, umming and ahhing then said more or less confidently, “lentil and tomato soup.” We’ve had it countless times since – even sometimes by plan!


• Replace the tinned tomatoes with passata if desired.
• Replace curry powder with sweet paprika if desired.

    I love, love, love this soup! I made it so many times last winter, it was my go to recipe for lunch. I loved it puréed and chunky. I'm looking forward to making it again this winter. I wish I had more recipes like this, that you can make from pantry or fridge staples in 20 minutes. Thank you so much 😀
