Easy Tomato And Lentil Soup

Published Monday, 03 December, 2012 by Hana

Nice thick soup, perfect for winter!



  • Half an onion, diced
  • tinned tomatos
  • tomato puree (to taste)
  • 200g red lentils
  • 2 stock cubes (i used ham)
  • 1 pint boiling water
  • salt and pepper to taste


Soak the lentils in cold water for an hour.

soften onions in a pot in some oil.

when onions are soft, add tomatos and tomato puree (however much you like).

dissolve stock cubes in boiling water and add to pot along with pre soaked lentils.

cover and simmer for 40 minutes to an hour.

when lentils are cooked, blend soup together and add salt and pepper to taste.

if you like a thinner soup, add more stock!

    Both lentils and tomatos seem to be low gi so i think it should be. I think it would be better if you use vegetable stock cubes for a low gi diet.
