Ingredients

Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house.
If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.









What to do

    1. Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Cover and simmer for approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

    2. Remove meat from bones and discard bones, stirring meat back into soup. Discard bay leaf.

    3. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley if desired.

For a vegetarian option: Leave out the bacon bones and beef stock cubes and replace with vegetable stock cubes and 3 cloves garlic, sautéed prior to adding remaining soup ingredients.

Tip: A tasty way of getting vegies and lentils into kids, simply puree the soup once cooked and serve with toast soldiers for dipping!
