Winter Lentil Soup


1-2cups of lentils soak over night

1 leek

1 onion

2 cloves of garlic

1 large carrot

1-2 potatoes

4 rashers of lean bacon, excess fat removed

½-1 tablespoon oil

Vegeta (or chicken stock) and pepper to taste


Step 1 Heat a wok or large pot for a few minutes with the oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until clear and soft. Keep away from burning by adding small amounts of water to the pan/wok.
