This just in:  I created a soup.
 
I call it-

“I Don’t Care, I Do What I Want Lentil Soup”



The Recipe
 
Ingredients:
Glug of olive oil
2 onions the size of shrunken heads, Diced into big toenail sized pieces
6 or 7 cloves of garlic finely diced/ or a bulb, it just depends how much you need to have people around you

5-6 Potatoes the size of a black eye, preferable peeled to remove the spiney growths
2 or 3 cups of diced carrots, maybe peel those too
About 1 – 1 1.2 cups of lentils, you should rinse those first, heaven knows where they’ve been
Dried parsley a fair amount
Ground coriander maybe like a tablespoon
Garam masala a ton
chicken or veg stock,
Fresh coriander whatever you can find
Order Of Appearance:
So in a massive pot, because there’s a lot of vegetables, and the lentils will expand to triple their size, add the glug of oil.
Turn the hob on 
Gently heat the oil and chuck in the diced vegetables
when it gets to a point it looks like the onions have turned transparentish, throw in the lentils
Add in the parsley, coriander, maybe some cumin, and garam masala, I suggest you focus on the masala
Salt n Pepa
Add some stock now, enough to cover the contents of the pot

Boil then Simmer until the lentils are cooked through

Cool, then Blend in a blender, or with a wand blender, both work fine
You may feel the need to add more broth if the consistency sickens you 
With some of that fresh coriander, pick off some of the leaves ( I happen to like a lot)
chuck ’em in the soup
