Easy Scottish Lentil Soup


This is the easiest lentil soup, from the Scottish highlands, via our friend Callum. For this recipe though you need a Pressure cooker to really do it justice. I have cooked it slowly in a heavy based pot  and it is still delicious.

Ingredients:

1/2 mug lentils
2 onions chopped
3 bacon stock cubes crumbled
4 good sized carrots
Cover with water

When cooked add salt and pepper to taste.

Puree to serve and leave as lumpy as you like.

Garnish with coriander, parsley or whatever herbs you have on hand.

There are lots of variations out there for Lentil soup, and I have added pumpkin and other vegetables at times, however this recipe is a good basic soup which also stretches the budget.

Is your Scottish blood stirring?
