Method

  1. Crush the seeds in a pestle and mortar, then dry-fry for 2 mins in a large pan until lightly browned. Add the onion, carrots, lentils, orange juice, stock and seasoning, then bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 30 mins until the lentils are soft.
  2. Transfer to a food processor in batches and process until smooth. Return to the pan, then gently reheat, stirring occasionally. Adjust seasoning to taste. Ladle into individual serving bowls, swirl the yogurt over and sprinkle with the chopped coriander leaves and paprika. Serve immediately.

I used green lentils which did nothing for the colour, and I didn't get much of the carrot flavour coming through, although that may be due to the typ of lentils as well. However, it was a very nice, spiced soup. Great with crusty bread

very nice, i left out the yogurt, nice and light soup suitable for summer with a nice fresh bread roll. For winter i would probably add some roasted butternut squash to give a bit more flavour and maybe a touch of chilli.

Ditch the orange juice and make up the rest of the liquid with stock. Replace half the carrot with sweet potato for depth of flavour. Yum...

This is such an easy soup to make and the whole family eats it happily. The orange juice sweetens it and adds to the lovely colour. (Don't be put off by the picture. I whizz it smooth and leave out the yoghurt and coriander garnish.)
