Add the lentils, stock, undrained tomatoes and tomato paste to the pan. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add celery, carrots and bay leaves. Stir to combine. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 40 minutes until the soup has thickened. Add baby marrows and green beans.
