Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

This should make around 4 decent servings of soup, so if you are greedy like me it will serve 2 ;-)



  1. Dry fry the cumin seeds and the chilli flakes for about 1 minute. Remove half to serve.
  2. Add the oil, carrot, lentils, celery, stock and milk.
  3. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for about 20 minutes until the lentils have swollen and softened.
  4. Smooth with a stick blender or food processor.
  5. Serve and sprinkle with the reserved cumin seeds and chilli flakes.
