  • 500g red split lentils
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 tin cherry tomatoes
  • 1 vegetable stock pot
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • A few pieces of chopped chive
  • A sprinkle of chilli seeds
  • 1.5-2 litres boiling water
  • A sprinkle of thyme
  • 3 lemons
  • 1 lime


  1. Chop up the garlic clove into small pieces and add the lentils and the stock pot (without water).

  2. Boil the water and add to the mix in the large saucepan. Mix until the stock pot has dissolved into the water. Turn on the hob to a low heat and keep turned on throughout the making of the soup.

  3. Add the chopped pepper and the tin of tomatoes, mixing so nothing sticks to the pan. Squirt in the lemon and lime.

  4. Add all the herbs and spices, mix in and then blend with a hand blender until smooth.
