  • 6
    plum tomatoes, halved
  • 15
    olive oil
  • 15
    balsamic vinegar
  • 250
    red lentils, rinsed
  • 3
    garlic, chopped
  • 3
    large leeks, chopped

    long celery stalks
  • 3
    large carrots
  • thyme, to taste
  • 1.5
    of homemade stock


Arrange the tomatoes on a baking tray, drizzle with oil and vinegar, season with salt and pepper and grill until the edges begin to colour.

Place the remaining ingredients in a large saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer over a moderate heat for 20 minutes or until the lentils are cooked and soft. Use a stick blender to liquidise the tomatoes and add this to the soup. You can now process some of the soup until you achieve the desired texture. Season to taste and serve piping hot.
