Second week of the year and you’ve finished off all the leftovers from Christmas that you had in the freezer. It’s time to start cooking again and with the cold weather you fancy something nice and hot. But you have to resist temptation and you need recipes that help you to tighten your belt back to the same hole as it was before Christmas.

That’s why we bring you this recipe for cream of lentil soup: very tasty and packed with goodness to help keep out the cold. We’ll be using Organic Vegetable Stock and if you fancy a little extra creaminess you can replace some of the stock with Buckwheat Cuisine.

Notes:

The quantity of stock shown is to make a fairly thick cream soup. If you’d like it more liquid, just add more stock. And as garnish you can sprinkle on some croutons or a handful of chip sticks.
