Mauritian Lentil Soup
This Mauritian-inspired red lentil soup is the ultimate comfort food. Easy to whip together, it’s warming to the body, with a wonderful kicker of plant proteins from lentils, and prebiotic fibre and antioxidants from garlic and onions too.

- 2 cloves garlic, peeled & roughly chopped
- 1 brown onion, peeled & roughly chopped

- 200g red lentils, rinsed
- 1 carrot, roughly chopped
- 1L vegetable stock or broth
- 1 pinch chilli flakes

- In large saucepan on medium heat, combine extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, onion and tomatoes, cover and cook stirring occasionally for 5 mins.
