This is a hearty filling soup for them cold wintry days. I also would do this soup as a starter when doing Christmas dinner , all the family loves it. So from my table to yours hope you like and enjoy.....:)
1Wash, peel and prepare all the vegetables, for cabbage take off the outer layer of cabbage leaves, half and quarter and remove the hard centre bit. Use 2 of the quarters and slice up in strands , cut and slice other half and put into a food bag then into your freezer for again.
2Fill a heavy bottom pot half way up or little over. Add the soup barely, lentils and veg stock cube, and give a good stir. Then add all of the prepared vegetables and salt + pepper.
3Bring slowly to the boil and let simmer gently to draw out all the favours and nutrients.
Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally .
Then take off the heat, liquidise with a hand blender in the pot. The soup will have a thick concisely.
4Serve with homemade brown soda bread, sit back and enjoy .Think to yourself AH!! this winter isn't so bad.....:)
