Garlicky Lentil Soup

For Maxabella :-)

5 cups water / stock
250g red lentils
Garlic **
1 swede
2 stalks celery diced
1 carrot diced
6 x brussel sprouts
¾ cup green beans, diced
1 tsp salt
Pepper to taste

** The amount of garlic you add depends on your personal taste. We add 2 cloves of garlic crushed because Little B doesn’t like too much garlic. You may want to add more or less depending on how garlicky you like things – Mr B would add 4 if Little B wasn’t eating LOL **

Throw everything in a pot. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 40 minutes. Let soup cool then puree in a blender. Service with crusty rolls for dipping…yumm

The swede and garlic add a beautiful sweetness to this soup, and the rest of the vegies are packed full of nutrients. Cheap, tasty and relatively quick makes this soup a winner at our house.
