Lentil, Carrot, and Onion Soup (Thick)
Washed and soaked for 10 minutes
Fry garlic, onion, and carrot with a little salt and pepper until the onions are soft. Add paprika if using 30 seconds before adding stock.
Add stock and hot water to vegetables.
Add washed and soaked lentils and salt and pepper if required.
Summer and stir occasionally until the lentils are soft.
Once cooked, blend until solid carrot and onion chunks are no longer visible.
Add chilli flakes if using.
Garnish with parsley if desired.
If the water added doesn't cover your vegetables and lentils, add more. You can also thin the soup out this way. :)
