It’s time for some spicy vegetable and lentil soup

It’s always soup season in this house, however, the drop in the temperature as we near the end of the year makes us both crave a hearty bowl of soup.  Here is a recipe for a super easy-to-make soup – spicy vegetable and lentil soup.    Scotty Brand asked us to use their vegetable and lentil soup mix to make up a soup.  The Scotty Brand vegetable and lentil mix is in a packet with a mixture of prepared carrot, swede, leek and onions and a packet of lentils.  All you need to add is the stock and you have a basic vegetable and lentil soup.  Full instructions on how to make your soup are on the packet. We made this using a pressure cooker as we love it for saving not only time but energy costs. Click here for some more soup recipes.

We decided to liven things up a bit by making it spicy.  With the cold season here for many, the spice might help “clear your tubes” a bit.  Perfect for keeping you warm on cold evenings.  We served ours with some Nairn’s oatcakes.

Where to buy Scotty Brand Vegetable and Lentil Mix

The mixture is available to buy in both Asda and Tesco.

This soup is made in a pressure cooker, can I use a normal pot?

Yes, you can.  The main difference is the time taken to cook the vegetables and lentils.
