Smoked Paprika and Lentil Soup


You will need:
30g butter
4 stalks of celery, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
3 potatoes, diced
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
150g red lentils, washed
7.5ml smoked paprika
2.5ml ground pepper
Salt
125ml cream
2 litres home made chicken stock (click here for recipe)

Method:
Saute the celery, red pepper, potatoes and garlic in the butter for 10 minutes stirring continuously. Add a ladle of stock to the veggies is the pan starts to brown. Add the smoked paprika, pepper and salt and continue to sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Add the remaining chicken stock and red lentils and simmer on low heat for 1 hour. Taste and add more salt if necessary. At this point I turn the stove off, add the cream, stir and replace the pot lid. Leave the soup for about half an hour to rest before liquidizing. Serve with fresh crispy rolls or bread.
