Homemade Soup Recipe Method (1)

Chop the onions, into a separate pot (not your soup pot) with the butter, you are going to "sweat" the vegetables, this softens them and gives more taste. You are going to stir them until they turn start to turn in color, you will then add the chopped leeks, and grated carrots, and continue to stir as though you are slightly "sweating" the vegetables, if needed add more butter (we love a lot of butter)

Cooking the lentils

Firstly you are going to get a large soup pot and I usually 1/4 fill it with the lentils, fill with hot water and bring to the boil. this is the very first step you do and lets the lentils break down a bit until all the ingredients are ready to be added.

When the lentils are boiling you will notice a white layer of foam appearing, this is the starch releasing from the lentils, don't worry about this as you will be draining the lentils, (or you can "skim" this layer off from the top.

I remember the first time I saw this and thinking I had gone completely wrong!

Add the dissolved stock into the vegetables, and then add the whole lot to the lentils (of course you remembered to drain or skim the thick layer of foam off the lentils!)
