Autumn Potage

Submitted by: JACKSGRAN
Autumn Potage

Introduction

A thick filling soup. A thick filling soup.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients


    Lentils, 75 grams
    Carrots, raw, 50 grams
    Parsnips, 100 grams
    Apples, fresh with skin, 100 grams
    Pepper, black, 1 dash

Tips

This makes a really thick 'soup'. Tasty and savoury the vegetables can be varied according to what you have - but apple, sage and parsnip go together particularly well.

Can also be cooked in the slow cooker


Directions

Place the lentils in a pan and cover with water (you will need more than indicated in the list of ingredients, but I couldn't work out how to increase it sensibly. We don't use 'cups' in the UK)

Bring to the boil, skim and set to simmer

Peel or scrub the carrots and parsnips. Cut into uniformly sized pieces. Add to the pan and bring back to the boil then set back to simmer. Add more water if required.

Cut and core the apple then add it - it's up to you whether you peel it or not. It's a useful way to use up windfall apples

Add the sprig of sage (or thyme etc)

Cook until all vegetables are soft, then whizz together to smooth and soften. Careful if you do this while still hot.

Season with to taste black pepper, and salt if absolutely necessary.




Serving Size: Makes 2-3 servings

  • I made this in the crockpot and the aroma was wonderful. My mouth was watering for an hour before I ate it. I added more black pepper because I love pepper but made no other changes. I used my immersion blender to whip it all together and added the fresh sage leaves to garnish the soup. - 9/15/13
