Most of the soup that you can buy are full of preservatives, dairy, sugar etc etc This version is extremely simple to make and is absolutely packed full of flavour with only 7 healthy ingredients that you should already have in your kitchen!
As the weather seems so depressing a the moment I thought now was a great time to share my recipe.

I created this Lentil soup 3 ways to inspire people into creating more colourful and tasty ways of eating soup. Lentil soup or any other soup doesn’t have to be boring or dull looking, you just have to get great flavours and colours into it.
The base of this lentil soup is so cheap (easily less than £1 a portion) and simple to make. It’s absolutely perfect to batch cook and refrigerate/freeze to have at work during the week.
For people who say eating healthy, real food is too expensive send them this 🙂

Struggling for time??? No problem just try the soup with no toppings!

Introducing my amazing vegan Smoky Homemade Hummus.
Made with 6 ingredients and ready to eat in only 10 minutes plus it’s gluten-free!
More delicious than shop-bought hummus and cheaper too – you’ll love it so much you’ll never buy hummus again!
Makes plenty to enjoy over a few days – add to salad bowls, dollop on pasta, stir into risottos and of course, use as a dip.
Using these 6 core ingredients you’ll either have already or can easily get from most supermarkets.
Made with 6 ingredients: canned chickpeas, extra virgin olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and smoked paprika plus salt and pepper.
Simply place all the ingredients in a food processor and whizz.
If you don’t have a food processor, use a potato masher to mash all the ingredients together – the hummus will have a coarser texture but be just as tasty!
One of the advantages of making your own gluten-free, vegan hummus is that you can blend it to get just the consistency that you prefer. Add a little water for the smoothest texture.
This quantity makes 10 servings – I always make a large batch as it keeps well in the fridge and can be used in so many ways.
My homemade hummus is so much more than a dip!
Try it spread on crackers, dolloped on toast, added to salads or stirred into pasta, risottos or soup.
Serve with my homemade Gluten-Free Naan Breads for a tasty lunch or quick snack.
Perfect dipping partners
To serve, add a dusting of paprika and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Finish with some chopped herbs, if liked, flat-leaf parsley or coriander are my favourites.
