    Made a dead simple lentil soup for lunch today.

    One onion
    3 large carrots chopped
    2 tins chopped tomatoes
    A good squeeze of tomato paste
    A cup or si of red lentils
    Some extra water (about 3/4 pint this time)
    Bay leaf and generous quantity of herbs (i did oregano) and seasoning

    Lightly fry onion, add all other ingredients (wash the lentils in a sieve before adding) bring to boil then gently simmer for c30/40 minutes. So 5 mins prep and then pretty much ignore!

    I had it chunky today. Tomorrow I might blend. Friday I will probably add some chilli or paprika and posdibly some red kidney beans.

    Beef and barley stew.

    More like a thick, savory soup. Made with beef shank, chicken stock and assorted veggies. Adjust the barley to control the carb content. Grate some fresh horseradish over it at presentation. Contains a boatload of potassium.

    Made it again today. Here's a picture.
