Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the butter in a saucepan, add the coriander, if using, and cook for 1 min. Stir in the lentils and carrots, then pour in enough water to just cover.

  • STEP 2

    Bring to the boil, cook for 10 mins, then turn down and simmer for a further 5 mins or until the lentils and carrots are tender.

  • STEP 3

    Drain, then transfer to a food processor and pulse until smooth with the yogurt, if needed. Serve one portion and divide the rest between small containers and freeze.
