Pea Soup, 16p a serving, Meal Plan 1
Falafel with carrot salad, only 37p a serving, Meal Plan 1

I love this soup, it is my go to for a soup for lunch. I usually add a tsp of ginger paste from a jar, a tsp of garlic paste, and a tsp of turmeric to give it a lovely spicy kick, and at 16p a serving, you can have a big bowl.

Lentil Soup

70g onion, chopped
100g carrots, scrubbed and chopped (no need to peel)
250g red lentils
1 tbslp oil
Makes 4 portions

Saute the onion and carrots in the oil until soft.  Add the red lentils and a litre of water. Simmer for 20 minutes. Whizz with a stick blender or in a liquidiser, or leave as it is. Add more water if the soup is thicker than you would like

If you are following the planner for Week One,  serve half the soup between 2 people on 2 separate days.

Variations

A delicious variation for this soup is to add a teaspoon of turmeric and a thumbnail of fresh ginger and perhaps a little garlic. It gives a lovely spicy flavour. You could also experiment with other spices
