Waste not Want not Lentil Curry Soup

We woke up to snow here this morning, and needing to warm up, a hot and spicy soup was called for.  I am firm believer in the war time maxim 'waste not want not,' and so set about collecting random ingredients for a curry soup.  I had a lot of salad and spinach leaves in the fridge to use up, along with some dried apricots and carrots...We had this for lunch and it was so yummy thought I would share below:



Lentil Curry Soup - Serves 4-6

2 small onions chopped
3 small carrots chopped
2.5cm garlic paste
2 tspns Curry Powder
In a large saucepan fry the above ingredients together for 2-3 minutes with Fry Light Spray

Now add 
1 & 3/4 pints vegetable stock
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 tbspn Tomato Puree
40gm dried apricots chopped
2 tbspns Mango Chutney (or to taste)
Any left over vegetables you have lying around such as spinach leaves, salad leaves etc in the fridge 
S&P

Simmer for 20 minutes, then blend until smooth. Then add:

Tin of green lentils drained and rinsed

Continue to simmer for 10 minutes and serve with Crackers, Naan or French bread - yum!
