Tomato & Red Lentil Soup

With the colder than normal for May bloody freezing conditions outside, tonight for dinner I cooked up one of my favourite Winter staples, tomato & red lentil soup, dead easy, warming & very delicious

Tomato & Red Lentil Soup

1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, diced
1 clove of garlic
2 tins crushed tomatoes
4 cups vegetable stock
1/2 cup red lentils

Gently fry onion, garlic & carrot in a heavy bottomed soup pan until softened. Add tomatoes, stock & lentils, cook for approx 1 hour until all ingredients softened. Season to taste & serve with some crusty bread
