Smoky Tomato & Red Lentil Soup

A delicious Smoky Tomato & Red Lentil Soup from the Quick After-Work Cookbook.

Smoky Tomato & Red Lentil Soup


Sunflower oil 1 tbsp

Onion 1, peeled and chopped

Carrot 1, peeled and chopped

Celery 1 stick, chopped

Red lentils 110g (4oz), rinsed

Smoked paprika 1 tsp

Chopped tomatoes 227g can

Water 750ml (1¼ pints)

Vegetable stock cube 1

Salt and freshly ground black pepper



Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the onion, carrot and celery and cook for 5–7 minutes until the vegetables have softened.


Add the lentils and paprika to the pan and cook for about a minute, stirring continually. Add the tomatoes and water and crumble in the stock cube. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat, cover the pan and simmer for 20 minutes or until the lentils are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Spoon the soup into warmed bowls, or purée using a stick blender or in a food processor before serving.

    I love Dairy Diary and the recipes which are quick, easy and tasty. Also the reminder stickers, hints and tips. Have been using them for at least 5/6 years. Would be lost without it –

    I love this Smoky Tomato & Red lentil soup.
    I added a little bit of ginger to mine but you can make it exactly how you like it. Will be making this again!
