Lentil and mushroom soup

Lentil and mushroom soup is a great gluten free vegan winter warmer. Adapted from a Nigel Slater recipe. Great with gfv flat bread. This also works great with a fresh sprig of rosemary (instead of parsley) added at step 3. (don’t forget to remove the stalk at the end).

Soups are great as a snack or the prelude to a larger dinner. You can take a soup recipe and adapt it to your taste or the contents of your fridge or cupboard.

Great as a starter to a main such as chestnut and lentil bake or lentil and pumpkin seed roast.
