A hearty, comforting red lentil soup that has its beauty in the overall simplicity of the dish.
Dice the onion and garlic into really small bits.
Grate the carrot.
Heat up the olive oil in a large pot and add the onion and garlic. Fry until the onion is translucent.
Add the grated carrot and fry for another minute.
Add the red lentils and combine everything thoroughly.
Add the crushed tomatoes, water, veggie stock cubes, oregano and some salt and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil, lower the heat and let the soup simmer for about 30 minutes.
Sprinkle the soup with some fresh herbs and chilli flakes and serve with some bread.
Tip! If you want a thicker soup, remove the lid and let the soup reduce while it simmers.
