Vegan soup recipe – Lentils and Veggies and Beer – oh my!

on December 30, 2014

I needed to make some soup at Christmas when I was staying with my parents. This is what I came up with:


1tbsp rapeseed oil
1 medium sized onion, chopped
1 green chili, sliced
2 ribs of celery, sliced
1 parsnip, diced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 cup of red lentils
750ml vegetable stock
250ml beer (I used lager)
Juice of half a lemon
A handful of chopped coriander leaves
Salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a pot. Add the onion, chili and celery and fry for around 5 minutes. Add the parsnip, lentils and tomatoes and fry for another minute. Then add the stock, beer, lemon juice, coriander, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for around 40 minutes or until lentils and parsnips are tender. Let the soup cool slightly and blend with an immersion blender.

Serve with chopped coriander leaves. Soya cream and freshly ground black pepper could also be used as a garnish
