Now that Baby Squirrel is eating pretty much anything we put in front of her (mostly), I am keen to cook more meals that both Baby Squirrel and Mr Squirrel and I can enjoy.
This soup is just perfect, and is easily transformed into a meal for the adults in the household with the addition of some simple ingredients. Read on to find out more…
In a large pan heat the olive oil on a high heat, then add the onion, garlic, celery and carrots.
Stir well, so the vegetables are coated with the oil, cover, reduce heat and sweat the vegetables for around 10 minutes.
Next, add the lentils and stock, bring to the boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer for around 20 minutes.
Blend using a food processor/blender…
For the little ones, I serve this as is, or use some toast fingers dipped in the soup.
With the addition of a little salt, pepper, croutons and grated parmesan, this makes a lovely meal for Mum and Dad too… mmmmm!
This is a lovely warming soup for an Autumnal/Winter day, and freezes well for those days where baby won’t let you put her down!
