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!
