Potato Lentil Soup
Oil for frying
1 medium onion, diced
3-4 medium potatoes, cubed
1/2 cup red lentils
2 tsp Massel chicken style stock powder
4 cups boiling water
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Fry the onion in oil until softening add potato and fry for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Add stock and stir right through the potato and onion so it frys slightly (helps bring out the flavour) then pour in the boiling water carefully and the lentils, stir and bring to a boil. Turn down and simmer until the lentils are cooked and the potatoes are soft and mushy.
Season and purée with a stick blender.
