There are few things more comforting than a bowl of carrot and lentil soup. Especially when it's filled with fresh vegetables, chilli and warming curry spices – and topped with crisp ciabatta croutons.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C (fan)/ 350°F/ Gas 4

Boil a full kettle

Peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]

Top, tail and roughly chop the carrots

Heat a large, wide-based pot with a drizzle of olive oil, over a medium-high heat

2 Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

Once hot, add the chopped onion and carrot, with a pinch of salt, and cook for 3-4 min or until the onion is starting to soften

Meanwhile, peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

3 Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

Add the garam masala, ground turmeric, chopped ginger, red split lentils and 1/2 of the chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to the pot and cook for 1 min or until fragrant

Meanwhile, dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 1.2L [2L] boiled water

4 Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

Add the stock and cook for 10-15 min or until the lentils and carrots are tender

5 Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

Meanwhile, chop the ciabatta into bite-sized pieces

Place on a baking tray and add a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt

Put the tray in the oven and cook for 5-6 min or until crispy – these are your croutons

6 Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

Chop the coriander finely, including the stalks, reserving some of the whole leaves for garnish

Roll the lime[s] with your hand on a hard surface (to release more juice!) and cut into quarters

7 Spiced Carrot & Lentil Soup

Once the lentils and carrots are tender, pulse with a (stick) blender (or food processor) until it has thickened, whilst maintaining some chunks from the vegetables

Wash the baby leaf spinach, then pat it dry with kitchen paper

Add the spinach and chopped coriander to the pot and cook for 2-3 min until wilted

Add the juice of 1/2 [1] lime – this is your lentil & carrot soup
