This is what I made for tonight as carrots are in season and I fancied a nice hearty soup.
I cooked some baby carrots with a diced onion at the same time I cooked some red lentils and a little quinoa and then when it was all cooked I let it cool before blending it and adding cayenne pepper cumin coriander a pinch of salt back pepper yeast extract and some soy single cream and brought to back to the boil very gently.
I put a little fresh chopped parsley on top with some little chunks of potato diced in its skin sautéed in a little olive oil. This is instead of croutons and I really like crispy potatoes so a great alternative thats also quick and easy.
October is definitely soup weather here in the UK and this was nice and warming and I've enough left for another day.
Eat well and be well folks.
