Curried lentil and vegetable soup

From Cookipedia

This substantial soup has been adapted from Mrs Maureen Kirkland's recipe for Rumpy-pumpy soup which appears in The Hairy Bikers' book, Mum's Know Best (ISBN 0297860267). Maureen's original recipe was created as a way to get her children to eat vegetables in disguise, but my adaptation is slightly more gutsy.

Serving suggestions

This can be served as a first course, or it would make an excellent lunch if served with some homemade bread and salad.


Use different vegetables, according to season and vary the type of spice mix by using jerk seasoning. Froxen Tex-Mex spice mix etc. Frozen Brussels sprouts are fine, but add them about 10 minutes before the end of the stimated cooking time. The soup can be left as it is or can be liquidised.
