Don't be fooled by the title, this soup is one of the tastiest I've ever made. The Red Lentils not only add substance and protein, they also create a wonderful silken texture.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1-2 hours
Makes: 6-8 serves

Ingredients
1T oil
1 brown onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 large carrots, roughly chopped
2 stalks celery, diced
1 leek, roughly chopped
1 potato, peeled and diced
700-800gm pumpkin (I use butternut squash)
1 cup red lentils
6 cups water (or chicken stock)
1 bay leaf
1T curry powder
1t cumin
Salt & pepper to taste

Method
-Heat oil in a large stockpot and add onion & garlic.

-Sweat for 3-4 minutes before adding carrots, celery and leek. Cook on a medium heat, stirring occasionally for a further 4-5 minutes.

-Add remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1-2 hours, or until lentils have completely softened and vegetables are cooked through.

-Blend until smooth, adjust seasoning and serve.
