- 240g (a packet) of smoked bacon chopped
- One chopped onion
- 2 Cloves of garlic
- 250g Red split lentils
- 2 pints of chicken stock
- 3 peeled carrots
- Fry the bacon in a pan until crispy and golden brown, remove from the pan and set aside.
- Gently fry the onion until translucent, then try the garlic for 5 mins. Add the bacon again to the pan, lentils and the stock.
- Cook for 30-40 mins until thickened, 15 mins before the end grate the carrots in (I'm not a huge fan of carrots and I always end up leaving chunks of carrots so this way I can eat the whole soup!)
Serve with fresh bread, garlic bread or cheese on toast - perfect! Making me feel better already :)
