A lentil soup with bacon and red wine. Spiritasty and super-tasty. What else?
Ingredients (for 2):
- 1 can of lentils (380 g)
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 handful of bacon cut into pieces (or lardons)
- 1 teaspoon of chicken broth (powder)
- 6 cl of red wine
- 25 cl of tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon of mixed herbs of your choice (origan, thyme, rosemary,…)
Peel and chop onion, carrot and garlic.
Heat a large pan on medium heat and cook the bacon for 1 minute then add chopped vegetables. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add lentils, tomato sauce and herbs. Mix well, simmer and cover for 5 minutes.
Next add red wine, 40 cl of water, chicken broth. Cover partially and cook on low heat for about 30 minutes.
With a hand blender purée your soup to the desired texture (you might want to keep a spoon of the lentils apart to decorate).
Serve hot with a dash of evo oil.
